posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by E Long
This paper examines the roles of women in rural areas and limitations placed on them by traditional division of labour based on gender. It identifies the financial dependence of farm women on their husbands, and how their lack of equity in the farms reinforces this. The lack of recognition for women’s unpaid labour is discussed. Reasons for women’s lack of participation in rural industry policy and decision making processes are examined, and methods to rectify are considered. The role of rural women’s networks is highlighted.
