Bureaucracy and rural women: illustrations from Malawi

Bureaucracy and rural women: illustrations from Malawi

Rural Africana (21): 51-63

Most male civil servants in Malawi generally acknowledge that women are responsible for most work related to food production and that they are vital to the rural economy. However, the development projects formulated by such civil servants generally reflect a far more limited evaluation of the role of women, as homemakers, seeming to ignore their productive contribution to the economy. The paper provides insights into this apparent contradiction.
