Each case story in this documentation resonates with the need for developing skills in women to manage productive resources better. This case study compilation is a part of a wider study that compiles evidence on the gender resource data gap. Development plans at all levels need to set asides parcels of land use as women resource zone built within it for women to access both built and natural infrastructure, as women have been historically denied equal access to resources.
State government needs to intervene through affirmative action to increase the resource base for women. Women active in the national land right movement got very little in return for investing their energies. State policies for women don’t translate either into active programmes to create gender equality. Therefore, resource gaps between men and women have yet to decrease. Area development plans in which spaces would be demarcated for women to manage and access collectively for care services and livelihoods could be a remedy.
