Women at Work

This paper discusses the nature of the fish processing industry in India, focusing on issues concerning the migrant women workforce specifically. The fish processing industry employs migrant women workers on contract in almost all parts of the country. A detailed questionnaire was used to elicit information from the workers and the data collected have been supplemented with detail derived from observation and informal discussions with women workers. Information from the villages from where the women are recruited and from discussions with their friends, neighbours and relatives also forms a major part of the database.
