15 February 2018: Aspiring for the future: Drivers and consequences of women’s aspirations in rural India

Kalyani Raghunathan
International Food Policy Research Institute

Organised by:
Brookings India

Abstract:
Kalyani Raghunathan examines the drivers of the aspirations of rural women around income, asset ownership, social status and the education of their children. Using data from five states in Northern India, she studies what role the average levels of outcomes in geographical and caste-based reference groups have to play in the formation of aspirations. She then investigates how the gaps between current and aspired-to status influence individual investments in financial, social status-related, and educational dimensions.
