5-minute lesson: Gender matters


Seven ways that gender matters is the subject of this five-minute lesson given by Janelle Larson of Pennsylvania State University. Larson's project is a collaboration with the Pan-American Agricultural School, Zamorano and seeks to understand how the horticulture value chain can support equity and empowerment for women in Western Honduras. She then identifies seven ways that gender matters to: agriculture, household decision-making, dietary diversity, food security, institutions, men, and development.

Larson is the primary investigator of this project with funding from the Horticulture Innovation Lab. This presentation was given at the 2017 Horticulture Innovation Lab annual meeting in Antigua, Guatemala.
