    Agricultrices dans la solitude des champs d'oignons

    L’objectif de cette étude n’est pas de décrire le rôle des agricultrices dans toute sa complexité. Il serait vain et illusoire, dans un simple billet, d’en détailler toute la diversité, tant les disparités sont grandes entre, d’une part, les branches agricoles, les modes de production, et, d’autre part, les aires géographiques, continentales, nationales ou régionales. Non. Le propos est d’en dégager les constantes, les obstacles qui pavent le parcours des femmes. Des obstacles qui freinent leur carrière, qui les empêchent de vivre décemment, qui les empêchent de faire vivre décemment leur famille. Ces obstacles, plus marqués dans les pays en voie de développement qu’ailleurs, ont pour origine une seule et même cause : le sexisme.

    South Africa: land reform - cloud cuckoo land or calculus of power?

    Significant strands within the ruling ANC appear to believe the answer to poor black marginalisation and de-agrarianisation lies in the recreation of a rural idyll of ‘vibrant’ local economies, disciplined workers, benign farm owners, virtuous peasant farmers and omnipotent chiefs.
