讲座内容简介:Between daughter deficit and development deficit: The situation of unmarried men in a south Indian community
Existing literature project daughter deficit as almost the only cause in the delays that many men are experiencing in finding brides in countries such as China and India with a severe sex ratio imbalance. Drawing from research in district Namakkal in Tamil Nadu in south India which has had a relatively long history of daughter elimination resulting in female deficit, the paper demonstrates that the effects of daughter deficit unfold, not in isolation, but in the midst of changing economic processes, development gains made by women, and shortcomings among men in marriage. These effects are immediately evident in women’s bargaining position in negotiating marriage. Whether daughter deficit will increase violence against women and society in general or enhance the value of women will depend on its interaction with development processes, gender inequality, and the important gains women are making to challenge traditional gender norms.
