ROLE OF WOMEN IN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT AT HOUSEHOLD LEVEL - A GLIMPSE OF RURAL WEST BENGAL, INDIA

Golden Research Thoughts 12/2012; 2(6):1-8.

ABSTRACT The proper development of our society is not possible without the collective
participation of both male & female. The active participation of women in household is
vital to make an efficient family as well as society. But their importance is never
appreciated by the patriarchic society. As a result they are always deprived. Deprivation
has become an integral part of their life; they are forced to live this life without any
appreciation & expectation to our society. This picture is very common in rural India as
well as the whole third world. The present paper has been prepared on extensive field
survey at Banpur Mouza , Krishnaganj , Nadia, West Bengal, India.

    ABSTRACT: I explain a biosocial model of women's gendered behavior (behavior on which the sexes differ). This model integrates a macro sociological theory with a biological theory derived from primate behavior. The sociological model is designed to explain changes in the relationship between sex and behavior over time or between groups. The biological model is designed to explain individual within-sex variance and between-sex variance in gendered behavior in a cohort. Results from an original study are presented to demonstrate that within-sex variance in women's gendered behavior is explained well by the primate model. I conclude that human nature is gendered. The implications of this conclusion are explored for demographic and other social science research.
