The state of food and agriculture 2010–2011: Women in agriculture: Closing the gender gap for development
The State of Food and Agriculture 2010–11 makes the "business case" for addressing gender issues in agriculture and rural employment. The agriculture sector is underperforming in many developing countries, in part because women do not have equal access to the resources and opportunities they need to be more productive. Promoting gender equality is not only good for women; it is also good for agricultural development.
