Women are vital human resource and play a significant role in agricultural and allied sectors undertaking both on-farm and off- farm activities. Yet their contribution has not been recognized and they are considered as ‘invisible farmers’. Considering this, the present study has been conducted to analysis the constraints faced by women labourers in agriculture and allied sectors. A total of 150 households were randomly selected using snowball sampling technique method. The selected women labour respondents were interviewed personally using pre-tested well-structured interview schedule. The finding showed that the major constraints that farm women faced were lack of alternative employments with a mean score of 65.26 followed by No regular work or seasonal work. Low wages got third position with mean score of 61.66. Low literacy level got fourth position followed by Lack of trust in women’s capacity. Working area distance, lack of time for personal needs, Lack of training in farm activities and Excessive burden of work in the family are the other major constraints faced by women agriculture labourers.
