Description

The research examined the impact of gender inequalities on food security in rural households in Nyansiongo Sub-Location, Nyamira County. It sought answers to the following questions: resources that women accessed and controlled to ensure household food security, their attitudes and perceptions towards food security, and their level of participation in decision-making in food security. The study was guided by the Entitlement Approach/Theory). Target population was women farmers. Data was collected using qualitative and quantitative methods and was analysed. Main findings of the study were: resources necessary for household food production, land, oxen/plough, and farm equipment/implements were controlled by others other than the respondents. Women did not participate in decision-making issues on household food security. Women were the major labour providers for household food security.
