The relevance of this book is caused by the fact that women accomplish a substantial amount of work at the household level. Yet it is ironic that women’s work is generally considered part of leisure, and kept out of the national accounting system. Women’s household work is not valued and they remain invisible in the household and national economic systems. Valuing women’s unpaid work: Experiences from Odisha provides a different perspective suggesting a differentiated measure to value the invisible and unrecognized efforts of women based on empirical research undertaken in the State of Odisha, India. It attempts to integrated macro and micro-level analysis to address the value of unpaid domestic duties usually accomplished by women.
