Data collection ongoing


Studies on migration confirm that most of the migrants are men who migrate to cities due to rampant unemployment in search of a livelihood and those who are left behind, are women. With the onset of the pandemic, the past two years saw migration and reverse migration in these areas.

In this study we compare the impact of male migration between the women of rural areas of Kumaon, Uttarakhand and semi urban areas of Dausa. Through a preliminary questionnaire we have identified those women who have had male migration from their families in Kumaon. As we move ahead, we aim to map women’s autonomy via studying variables like internalized misogyny, their quality life and self-financial efficacy to gauge the same.
