This is the cry of an African woman. The fact that women, despite the slow but emerging recognition of their silent contribution, still face stumbling blocks in their path towards development, makes this cry reverberated around the world. India, having agriculture as the main occupation and women playing a significant and crucial role in it, is also not an exception. In agriculture, their contributions are at least quantified and are found to be about 50 per cent whereas in fisheries, their picture is not at all visible and their cry is not louder enough to catch the attention of the outer world.
