Women Dairy Project: With Special Reference to Orissa
Cattle rearing and dairying are vocations that have been traditionally centred around women, with the latter estimated to account for as much as 85% of India s animal husbandary. Over a million producer members of dairy cooperatives only 20% are women. Further, their participation in decision making bodies (board of directors, management committees) is marginal. Women s dairy project (WDP) launched during 1986-87 as part of the Support to Training and Employment Program for Women (STEP) of the Department of Women and Child Development, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India has made headway in imparting a pragmatic orientation by increasing women membership, and control over income from dairying.
