9 editions published between 1980 and 1985 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the total world food supply, small farmers play a crucial role, particularly in less-developed countries and in production of food for the poor. Smallholder systems are being undermined by many forces, of which migration is a major ingredient. Women's participation in the smallholder sector, always central, becomes indispensable when men leave to work as wage laborers. If they are overlooked in development efforts, the implications for future food supply become ominous

The Role of Women in Rural Youth Transitions by Martha Wells Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the situation is changing, rural America has been the scene of declining opportunity for 50 years. For the many rural females left behind in communities depleted by outmigration, there are limited opportunities and few role models besides that of wife, mother, and farm woman. The role of farm woman is demanding, self satisfying, and crucial to the well being of the family enterprise, yet not considered productive in economic terms. Most rural women come from a strong, resourceful tradition. They provide a social link to the community and a work hand on the farm whenever necessary. However, there are many rural women who face isolation, depression, and despair every day; it is these women who must be given hope. Work transition strategies for rural youth should involve the recognition and the respect of the work that women do, and the realization that being a farm wife is a probable vocation for many rural girls. Women should be brought into the planning processes and school staff should be aware of and respect Title ix, the basic anti-sex discrimination in education statute. The most sensible strategies involve continuing current practices such as the 4-h Club and Green Thumb, which provide creative school-to-work transition experiences for both boys and girls. (Sb)
