Raising the discourse for women cotton-pickers in Pakistan

In April of 2014, there had been little policy or media mention of women cotton harvesters, and months laterwhen the issue was raised it was with regard to wage. CSSR had spent a considerable amount of time emphasising the feminisation of agriculture and its policy implications and through LANSA research were further able to link income, care and nutrition.

In this manner when the topic of economic rights of women cotton harvesters entered the public policy sphere, CSSR was well positioned to speak at appropriate forums and was able to introduce the linkage to nutrition.
