Contexte
The 2011 Gender and Development Index (GDI) placed Ethiopia in the 174th position out of 187 countries. Men are favoured over women with regards to food, health care, education, and formal sector employment. Agriculture is a livelihood source for the majority of rural women and men. While women farmers perform up to 75% of farm labor, they only hold 18.7% of agricultural land. Though women possess equal rights to access bank loans, mortgages, and other forms of financial credit, they have not been able to use them effectively.
