Abstract: Women's participation is an unavoidable issue in community based sanitation of rural Bangladesh. In fact sanitation is their major work. To complete this work women use their own approach which is developed through a social process. Women’s approach is a vital part of integrated rural sanitation as because sanitation related women’s works are materialised through this approach. To understand women’s approach as a whole recently a Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) has been conducted in 4 areas of rural Bangladesh. The study collected very diverse but significant data which result in this paper. The study focused on all kinds of sanitation works at domestic sphere e.g., hygienic latrine, safe water and hygienic behaviour, etc.
