Short summary
What does change in agriculture hold in store for men and women? This paper proposes a methodological framework to assess the de- and recomposition of gender roles in the context of agricultural transformation. The methodology allows for reassessing the question of whether opportunities emerging from export orientation offer pathways to women’s empowerment, to gender equality and improved well-being, or if these changes result in more obligations to be carried on female and on older shoulders.
