This chapter studies the issues of gender and space in home-based production. The experiences of a group of women workers involved in home-based work for a food processing unit in Kerala, where membership to Kudumbashree, the state-centric civil society organization, is necessary for participation, provides the settings. The theoretical aspects of space and gender, in the context of how they are mutually formed and how gendered spaces are produced in the workers’ everyday lives are analysed. A geographical explanation of the formation of such gendered spaces under home-based production is presented, following which everyday labour relations and the framing of workers’ response strategies, which brought capital and labour to the negotiating table, are illustrated.

Keywords:   globalization, Kudumbashree, food-processing industry, home-based production, social capital, responsible welfare, everyday labour relations, Kerala
