Women in Agriculture Worldwide: Key issues and practical approaches by Amber J. Fletcher

Over the past two decades, existing documentation of women in the agricultural sector has surveyed topics, such as agricultural restructuring and land reform, international trade agreements and food trade, land ownership and rural development and rural feminisms. Many studies have focused on either the high-income countries of the global North or the low-income countries of the global South. This separation suggests that the North has little to learn from the South, or that there is little shared commonality across the global dividing line.

Fletcher and Kubik challenge this political, economic, and ideological separation by drawing together authors from 12 different countries, over 5 continents. They discuss the situation for women in agriculture in 14 countries worldwide, as well as two chapters that cover international contexts. The authors blur the boundaries between academic and organizational authors and their contributors include university-based researchers, gender experts, development consultants, and staff of agricultural research centers and international organizations (i.e., Oxfam, the United Nations World Food Program). The common thread connecting these diverse authors is an emphasis on practical and concrete solutions to address the challenges, such as lack of access to resources and infrastructure, lack of household decision-making power, and gender biases in policymaking and leadership, still faced by women in agriculture around the world. Ongoing issues in climate change will exasperate many of these issues and several chapters also address environment and sustainability.

This book is of great interest to those who study strategic management, gender studies and environmental economics.
