Farmers, farm women or farmers’ wives?

As we move forward, and explore the role of women and their identity in the context of agriculture, it is critical to move away from identifying them as simply farm women, or farmers’ wives (except in a situation where it is indeed the case) but more so as farmers given their significant contributions to agriculture.

Featuring collaborative gender research across CGIAR

Research and lessons learned from a collaboration between the CGIAR Research Programs on Roots, Tubers and Bananas (RTB), and Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM) to produce gender-sensitive tools to make value chain interventions more gender responsive have been shared during a training workshop for CGIAR gender research experts.
