Abstract:
Livestock and livelihood is much interlinked in a country like India as well as in a state like Kerala. In Kerala half of the population is residing in rural areas where livestock or cattle rearing form a major source of income to the people especially to the women folk. Realising the role it played in rural life, many of the local bodies has incorporated schemes associated with livestock in the Women Component Plan (WCP) of the Panchayath. One such scheme from the WCP of Mattathur Grama Panchayath associated with cow rearing (Samagra Pasu Valarthathal Padhadhi) is taken as a case study to examine how far it improved the condition of women and empowered them socially, economically and politically.
