Women’s Wisdom: Documentation of Women’s Knowledge in Agriculture (Case studies from Philippines, Thailand and Pakistan)


Women do not get recognition for their role and contribution in agriculture despite being an active partner in its development and organisation. Women are the custodians and carriers of a sea of knowledge, but their wisdom, their perspectives and their practices see no recognition in history nor in present times. This book consists of several case studies on Asian rural women that aims to recognise women’s knowledge and role in agriculture and, empower them in the use and development of this knowledge.
