Marital relations and family life of tribal women in Kalaburagi district
Tribes or scheduled tribes were living in forests and as such, they are not civilized to modern society. Female population is more among few of the tribes, but still there is gender inequality as females have possessed subjugated position in family and society. It is highlighted that to a greater extent, females are also engaged in tribe based occupations and are assisting male family members in their tribal occupations. To assess the marital relations and family life of the tribal women, the present study is made in Kalaburagi district. A sample survey of 250 tribal women living in rural areas was made and it was found that the tribal females are illiterates or low-educated. As such, their family status is lower and majority of them are not participating in decision making in their families.
