Gender is a crucial element of agricultural innovation and needs to be embedded in agricultural research so that rural lives and livelihoods can be improved for all, including women, men and children. This International Women’s Day, a call to greater focus on gender research with the right mix of tools and appropriate strategies, is one means of helping to achieve equality for women and thereby, progress for all.
Women are involved in all aspects of agriculture. Their role however, often goes unseen and unrecorded given social, cultural and economic barriers.Gender research, therefore, is a crucial component of agricultural research for development.
