The role of women has always acted as the backbone to uphold the agricultural sector but in reality, it can still be realized to have been overshadowed by the male pre-dominance which is learnt through the landholding rights of agricultural lands in India. The rural women engaged in agricultural areas amount to 85% but only 13% women have their own lands. The disparity of landholding rights lights the patriarchy which still is a major game changer.

The situation calls out to protect and uplift the rights of women farmers through affirmative policies and actions by the Government. Thus, through this paper attempt will be to understand the Government policies supporting women farmers and critically analyze the impacts it has on them.

Keywords: Feminization of agriculture, Agricultural labor force, Male dominance, Landholding rights
