This publication presents a collection of case studies and personal anecdotes that illustrate how Feed the Future programs are creating opportunities for women’s empowerment in agriculture. Each of the stories collected here demonstrates how Feed the Future partners are facilitating empowerment in multiple yet interconnected ways: from making agricultural markets more inclusive of women as part of value chain development; to creating opportunities for women to be leaders of change in their communities and economies; to facilitating supportive environments for women to exercise their voice and agency by challenging stereotypes about gender roles and power relations between men and women.
