The effects of government agricultural policy on women farmers in Kenya: a research proposal
MetadataShow full item record
This study proposes to compare the delivery of agricultural services to men and women farmers in two districts of Kenya. Two conceptual approaches in political science are put forth which justify a study of this type. While the participation of women in agricultural production is substantial, numerous studies indicate a failure to consider women farmers in academic analysis, development planning, and policy implementation. It is assumed that the effectiveness of policy implementation is limited to the extent that subgroups have differential access to that policy.
