Malay Peasant Women and the Land
Maila Stivens, Cecilia Ng, Jomo Kwame Sundaram & Jahara Bee
This study by a team of national and international academics looks at Malay women's role in the agricultural sector of the Malaysian economy, particularly as to how their property ownership and their role in production affects their status in society. Drawing on the historical background of women in agriculture, the authors look at ways in which the role of women could be improved in the modern economy. One map of the areas of study, an extensive bibliography and 30 sets of tables form part of this 122 page important work.
