Detailed content

We approach the topic of gender.power.agriculture. from different points of view. For this we have invited different people: Researchers, farmers and activists talk about their work and struggles, their experiences and hopes. We learn how gender oppression in agriculture has grown historically and is expressed in today's production patterns. We take a closer look at the history of enslaved women and the impact of colonialism. We also question our notions of what constitutes masculinity in rural areas and how that affects our relationship to nature. The second half of the event series will look at the experiences of queer people in gardening projects and the potentials and limitations of alternative forms of farming within the capitalist mode of production. We look at the successes and current struggles of women and queer people within the international small-scale farming movement, before asking in the final panel discussion what the next steps towards more gender-equitable education and practice in agriculture need to look like.
