Abstract

This paper analyzes the dynamics of women’s participation in the decisions made in the household by looking at the effects of events that transpired in the recent period. Results suggest that the wife’s participation status is positively affected by the presence of parents, either hers or the spouse’, in the household. Results also show that the wife’s parents significantly affect participation in minor issues while the spouse’s parents significantly affect the more relevant financial issues. The paper also offers a cursory discussion on the role of household headship.
