This book focuses on the economic activities of Khasi women, a matrilineal tribe in North-East India. Like most women in tribal societies, Khasi women contribute significantly to the sustenance of the family. However, women’s contribution to the economy remains a largely neglected area both in research as well as in policy, not only in North-East India but also nationally and internationally. What accounts for this general indifference to the economic role of women is one of the issues addressed in this book. The central issue however revolves around the question of why despite the substantial time and energy Khasi women invest in their business, many continue to stagnate, and why others, after acquiring some measure of success, slide into oblivion.
