dc.description.abstractWomen’s education has a high positive impact on society and higher education can help empower women to enter social, economic and political roles in their communities and countries. While progress has been made in terms of access to education overall and higher education in particular, women continue to face specific challenges that limit their access to and success in higher education. Case studies from around the world reveal multiple gender issues that keep women out of higher education institutions and prevent them from graduating. This research builds from this existing literature, but looks specifically at gender issues within higher education agricultural programs.en_US
