WOMEN WIELDING THE HOE
Lessons From Rural Africa for Feminist Theory and Development Practice
Deborah Fahy Bryceson (Ed.)
How effective is western aid-agency intervention in Africa? What can African women do to manage the AIDS crisis? Can western feminist theory be applied to the rural African context? These and many other vital questions are considered in this topical book by eminent scholars and development consultants.
Women Wielding the Hoe discusses the nature of agricultural production and social organisation, and fertility and sexuality in an agrarian context. It examines the role of outside agencies, with the objective of increasing awareness of the importance of women agricultural producers to African material development, and of exposing western biases that have traditionally pervaded the study of rural African women. It includes a critical review of conventional methodologies for documenting and analysing women's perspectives that will be useful in stimulating new kinds of research. Students and scholars of development, development workers, and policy-makers will find this book an important reference. Bibliography.
