The contribution made by an educational programme to processes of self organization (consciousness of unequal power relationships) among the farmers' wives who took part is assessed. A preliminary enquiry had examined the social situation of farmers' wives on livestock holdings. The publication reports on the preliminary enquiry and analyzes the education process over the study weekend. Mention is made of the organizational framework surrounding the farmer's wife; a questionnaire over her position and a short review of economic and social developments in Dutch agriculture are included.
