Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Beginning with a lengthy review of Marxist and feminist
theory on small-scale commodity producers and ethnographic studies of the rural Irish
family, the goal in this article is to deconstruct the family farm and recognize women's
economic contribution and agency, a topic largely ignored in prior economic studies. From
the basis of a survey of six hundred farms and in-depth interviews with sixty women, the
author analyzes farm income allocation, division of labor, ownership of land and property,
off-farm work, and education. Four categories of women's working relationships to the farm
are identified, varying in degree of subordination and empowerment. The important role
women have in the socialization and education of their children is discussed, and found to
have a significant impact on farm sustainability and reproduction as children are
encouraged to find a way out and pursue occupational achievements.
