Women and Extension
Editor's Introduction: Gender equity is an issue within Extension and an issue in determining the clientele we serve. This section presents three articles that examine Extension's role in supporting and empowering women. The first article examines historical and current trends in appointing women to Extension management positions state by state. The second examines an Extension program aimed at women in agribusiness. The third takes a global view of opportunities for Extension to empower women both within Extension and as a special client target group in developing countries.
