In rural Bangladesh women had no access to the formal employment market nor access to credit to engage in income generating activities before the advent of the garments manufacturing sector and the Grameen Bank. This study documents the result of an investigation into the effects of women's economic participation and earnings on their marital decision making power.

While assessing poverty incidence, it is a regular practice to consider the household as a single entity. This ignores intra-household distributional aspects, implicitly assuming that individual members face identical consequences in the event of the household’s coming to terms with changing economic circumstances. As a result, poverty measures will be misleading if household resource allocation mechanisms tend to favors some members at the cost of others.

Violence and injustice against women are common phenomena in Bangladesh due to the traditional patriarchal socioeconomic structure and mindset. Bangladesh has significant constitutional provision and statutory laws guaranteeing human and fundamental rights and women’s equal rights. However, poor quality of governance and non-implementation of these national policies have undermined the constitutional pledges.

Purity and Communal Boundaries explores the rich complexities of a central Bangladeshi village, populated by Muslims, Hindus and Christians. Through a carefully constructed theoretical framework Sand Rozario demonstrates the ways in which class and communal domination reinforce gender inequality. The position of women is analysed in terms of linkages between religious values, sexuality, economics and politics. Rozario also examines the divergence between the demands of the economy and the system of values in Bengali society.

The Strong Women of Modhupur reviews the history of the Garo people of both India and Bangladesh since they were first encountered by the British more than two centuries ago. It describes the older Garo culture that is now remembered as "traditional", and it tells of the events that have affected the Garo of Bangladesh since the end of colonial rule. The book then turns to the life of the Garos of Modhupur, among whom the author has lived on several occasions since 1984.

This is a study of social organization, focusing on the symbolic construction of womanhood in Muslim peasant community in Bangladesh. In the patriarchal, patrilocal, patrilineal society of Bangladesh, socio-cultural values sanction segregation of sexes, impose strict gender division of labor and foster a systematic bias of male supremacy (Roushan Jahan, 1983). Marriage is also seen as an exchange for security by which women obtain protection in return for the opportunity providing the continuity of patrilines. Thus a woman is rendered transferable.
