Women have been lacking ownership of land and resources. And the transfer of resources has remained mostly patrilineal among people of the Kandha tribe in #Odisha. Women are considered labour in their own fields. They do more than 70 per cent of the tedious field work but are never asked about their opinion when it comes to major agricultural or family-related decisions. In Kolnara block of Rayagada, women have come a long way, challenged their existing self-view of a labour and have established themselves as actual farmers. They are becoming self-dependent; starting from deciding the crops to be cultivated to marketing them and controlling the income thus generated - today they are emerging as the key decision makers.
