Caption: Date: 1970-1971 Location: Keroun, Morang Description: Women doing the back-breaking job of transplanting rice seedlings into the field. Labor for rice cultivation was fairly strictly separated by sex: men did the plowing and threshing, women did the transplanting and pounding. The white clothing here indicates that these are Tharu women. Keywords: Gary Ender, Nepal Photo History Project, Peace Corp Photo History
