Abstract

Agriculture is increasingly becoming the preserve of women has important implications for policy. Agriculture policy has been largely blind. In order to formulate policy that is sensitive to women’s roles and needs in agriculture, it is first of all necessary to improve the measurement of their participation and to recognize their contribution. Women empowerment should imply a process whereby women become able to organize themselves to increase their own self reliance, to assert their independent right to control resources which will assist in challenging and eliminating their own subordination.
