Ten years after the global food price crisis, women are still disproportionately disadvantaged by structural and emerging market factors that mean that they bear the brunt of poverty and hunger. Women and smallholder farmers in particular have been negatively affected by trade policy, competitive markets, and the accumulation of private power. There is, however, insufficient data to assess gender inequalities in agriculture. This paper makes recomendations to increase foreign aid to agriculture, as well as national public investments, in a way that guarantees participation and the inclusion of those worst affected by food insecurity.
