These writings delve into the multifaceted intersection of women and the economy, development, and politics.

Filled with insightful, evidence-based research and analysis, the book unravels the nuanced connections between women and the socio-political landscape. This two-volume anthology represents and reflects the progress made by Nepali women and the author herself in understanding and advancing their own agency. It will serve as an indispensable resource for scholars, policymakers, development practitioners, and anyone passionate about women’s empowerment and gender equality in Nepal.

Meena Acharya is a feminist economist whose work has focused on poverty, gender, macro economy, political structures and policies for equitable development. Her major contribution has been in measuring care work by women and men at home, the economic significance of which is recognised globally but remains a major unresolved gender issue. She was among the lead authors of the seminal, multi-volume ‘The Status of Women in Nepal’, published by the Centre for Economic Development and Administration at Tribhuvan University over 1979 and 1981.
