Event Description

The forum will attempt to understand the various issues and concerns regarding women and their work in the handloom industry while also analyzing the various policies and schemes and their impact on the women handloom workers. The effort is to understand the gender marginalization taking place in the industry despite an extensive 77% of female adult workforce in the sector as main weavers or allied workers. The discussion will also engage in experiences of successful stories of women cooperatives/associations which have succeeded in bringing the women weavers into forefront, acknowledging and appreciating their work.
