Female Workers in Agribusiness in Zimbabwe
"The objective of this study was to investigate the working conditions of female workers in agribusiness in Zimbabwe. It intended to focus on the position of female workers in the plantation labour process and female labour utilization in the smallholder outgrower sector. Together the plantation and smallholder sectors have become significant producers for coffee, tea, cotton, sugar and tobacco in post-independence Zimbabwe. Female workers have increasingly played a key role in various production processes on the plantation and outgrower sectors. So the study intended to explore the emerging patterns and implications of the gender division of labour and to document the more vulnerable position of female workers with respect to wages and working conditions."
