In India in 2009, 94% of the female agricultural labour force in crop cultivation was in cereal production, while 1.4% worked in vegetable production, and 3.72% were engaged in fruits, nuts, beverages, and spice crops. It shows the dominance of women farming workers in agriculture sector in India. These voices need to be heard at both the policy and implementation levels if it is to realize the dream of a progressive India. Women farmers in India perform most of the big farming jobs, from sowing to harvesting, yet their access to resources is less than their male counterparts. Despite their dominance of the labour force women in India still face extreme disadvantage in terms of pay, land rights, and representation in local farmer’s organizations. This study was based on secondary data; an attempt has been made to comprehensively understand the development effort to rebuild the rural life and livelihood on the basis of various secondary data. The present research paper throws lights on drudgery experience in various activities performed by farm women in cotton crop production activities and tries to find out the health hazards encountered while performing farm operation in cotton crop production from the ample available review of literature.
