Description/Abstract

A study of Muslim, Sinhala, and Tamil households in Sri Lanka that examines the commonality of the patriarchal structures and economic problems in such households

Item Type: Book
Additional Information: The rise of women-headed households in Sri Lanka has been attributed to the war. The books’ central importance is to challenge conventional wisdom by uncovering the multiple routes to female-headship across ethnic groups. The fieldwork also contests standard accounts that uphold Sri Lanka as an exemplar of egalitarian human development.
