This study focuses on one of the important but insufficiently dealt concerns of contemporary Nepal: the gender issue in agriculture. Apart from exploring the causes and consequences of near invisibility of Nepali female farmers in agricultural policies and programs, the study draws attention to a wide range of urgent issues from migration and feminization of agriculture to women's land rights. It provides cognitive content for evidence informed policy programming. The study is also a must-read for researchers and students of gender and development studies.
