Bangladeshi women are traditionally involved in various agricultural activities but most of their efforts remain unnoticed. To emphasize the significance of women's role in agricultural production, this paper highlights the major activities performed by Bangladeshi women in diverse agricultural production based on published literature. It was observed that Bangladeshi women are subjected to face social restrictions, but despite this, they are active participants in field and homestead crops production, poultry and livestock rearing, and fisheries management. They are predominantly involved in post-harvesting activities of field crops production. They retain control over all activities of homestead crops production. Management activities of poultry and livestock rearing, and fish culture are mostly performed by women. Women's involvement in such activities improves socioeconomic conditions by increasing household food security, family nutrition, and employment opportunities, all of which contribute to a more stable lifestyle. Bangladeshi women's contributions to agricultural production are noteworthy which should be recognized, appreciated, and valued.
