Transforming Gender Relations in Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa October 2013 by Cathy Farnworth, Melinda Fones Sundell, Akinyi Nzioki, Violet Shivutse and Marion Davis:
This book is based on the premise that empowered women and men are more successful farmers, able to make the most of opportunities around them. It argues that there is a causal relation between more equal gender relations in the household and in the community, and better agricultural outcomes. Standard development interventions such as more extensive services, better information, more fertilizer, better machinery - will not fully achieve their goals unless women and men are on equal footing and unhindered by gender norms that limit what is 'appropriate' for them to do or be.
