The story of farming in Bangladesh is additionally a story of the resilience of Bangladeshi women. 

Rural women make up about half of farm labour, and contribute between a quarter and half of household income. In addition to regular household chores and care work that fall to women, they are included in each perspective of farming: working the areas, post-harvest exercises, developing vegetables and kitchen gardens, raising ducks and other poultry, draining bovines, cultivating sheep and goats, and, urgently, getting water for family use.
