Jiggins argues that the neglect of gender issues in agricultural research and technology development has resulted in reduced agricultural output and household welfare. Jiggins states that normative views of gender roles are challenged a number of issues, including the scale of women's participation in agricultural production, food processing, and trade. Jiggins argues that the research community pays insufficient attention to institutional barriers which prohibit women from accessing extension, extension agents, and relevant agricultural information.
