Abstract: "This report analyzes the influence of agrarian transformations on the feminization of agricultural production in rural Tajikistan. It explores womens multiple labor relations for meeting basic needs of the household. The evidence shows that households have to depend on more types of agricultural work to secure day-to-day as well as long-term livelihood security. Overall, feminization appears in different types and groupings. The implication is that women in agriculture might not be adequately targeted in policies or integrated within intervention programs."
