ActionAid Bangladesh is advocating for women rights including right to food and nutrition security and SRHR. At the grassroot level ActionAid Bangladesh is implementing several projects that address the critical SRHR and nutrition issues particularly of women entrepreneurs. “Making Market Work for Women” (MMWW) is such a project funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands which aims to strengthen food security in selected districts of Bangladesh through improving women’s access to SRHR and nutrition.  Since November 2015 MMWW project is being implementing in Faridpur, Gaibahdha, Patuakhali and Bogura district through partnership with SKS Foundation, Shushilan and Association for Scio-Economic Advancement Bangladesh (ASEAB). Women face many internal and external barriers that hinder their access and ability to participate in the market. The prevailing gender norms and power relations in Bangladesh justify women’s potential and productivity and limited control over productive resources must be challenged if the economic participation of women is to be improved. In Bangladesh, women are directly working with agricultural production including input collection, land preparation, using fertilizer, weeding, pest management, harvesting, seed production and preservation for next cultivation. They are also involved in the  non-agricultural production to increase income through income generating activities along with daily household activities. Rural women play a key role in supporting their households and communities in achieving food security, generating income and improving rural livelihoods and wellbeing. Moreover, they faced many additional challenges concerned to health and wellbeing of them and their family members especially children. We expect a perfect balance between labor productivity through gender lens would enable women to have the time to participate equally in the society and the economy. To increase the labor productivity MMWW project is working with female agro entrepreneurs, government institutions responsible for service delivery as well as market committees. For deepening understanding on above discussed issues AAB is going to conduct a study to asses labour productivity using gender lens.
