Decision-making on the Farm book
A long-tenn case study at Cornell University found that agricultural choices are flexible and responsive to changes in the farm family decision-making environment. Farmers are influenced by needs and goals as well as the resources available to them. The expansion of and inclusion of women in agricultural higher education made a difference in farming families' decisions to include daughters and daughters-in-law in ownership and management of the farms. A study by Susan Rogers uses a model to explain the myth of male dominance, that a balance is actually maintained between the informal power of women and the overt power wielded by men.
