Structural Adjustment and African Women Farmers

By Christina H. Gladwin; Center for African Studies University of Florida | Go to book overview

tasks (enumerated by Elabor-Idemudia, this volume), may result in more (self-) exploitation of women. If, on the other hand, income-generating projects are based on activities already part of women's daily work plans, then they may benefit them by providing greater inputs or resources. As with other issues considered here, the actual results are likely to vary considerably from case to case.

In sum, the current situation of women's organizations in Nigeria, and elsewhere in Africa as well, is both exciting and problematic. It is exciting that women's organizations are being recognized as viable institutions that can make an important contribution to development. It is at the same time problematic, because there are still many questions about whether the existing organizational structures can in fact do all the things that are now expected of them.
