Centring Women in Nepal’s Economy and Society brings together Meena Acharya’s intellectual output spanning half a century. These writings delve into the multifaceted intersection of women and development, economy, and politics. From the intricacies of their role and impact on households and society at large, Acharya unveils the critical contributions made by women in all spheres of life. Filled with insightful, evidence-based research and analysis, the book teases out the nuanced connections between women and the socio-political landscape. This two-volume anthology represents and reflects the progress made by Nepali women and the author herself in understanding and advancing their own agency. It will serve as an indispensable resource for scholars, policymakers, development practitioners, and anyone passionate about women’s empowerment and gender equality in Nepal.
