Identity, Education and Empowerment of Tribal Women: A Study of Migrant Garo Women in Bangladesh.

posted on 24.06.2020, 05:19 authored by JANNATUL MAWA
In Dhaka, Bangladesh, a great number of Garo migrant women works in local beauty parlours, garments factories and households, some also studies. This research attempts to understand why the ethnic minority Garo women were engaged in such large numbers in these areas and how formal or informal was the education they had undertaken to pursue these types of employment and the impacts on their identity and their sense of empowerment. The focus of this research is to investigate the impact of education on Garo migrant women’s identity and empowerment in the urban context of Bangladesh.
