Historical Studies on Women in Agriculture book
Women have become a subject worthy of serious research in the history of agriculture relatively recently, a change that parallels the general women's movements. Core bibliographies such as Catherine R. Loeb's and othersl reflect the scarcity of unique sources on women in agriculture and highlight the need for further research in this area. While the role of women has been randomly intertwined in the history of agriculture from ancient times, there is now a determined need to document women's specific contributions as well as the conditions and impact of their work in this most vital area oflife in global cultures.
