P8 - Gender and Management in Agribusiness: the contribution of women
         managers for rural development

Raquel Santos Soares Menezes
Adriana Vieira Ferreira

Papers in Portuguese, English and Castellano; session in Portuguese.

The purpose of this panel is to discuss the contribution of women who are at the forefront of organizations linked to agribusiness, at all stages of production chains, to promote rural development. Therefore, we must consider that men are more predominate in organization management in the rural area, as in most other activities. However, little has been produced in the academic field, about the possible mechanisms for greater female participation in agribusiness. Thus, the purpose of this panel is to encourage this debate about the reasons for this low representation, and draw policy proposals that will contribute to a major women participation in agribusiness management.
