Followed by new crops and techniques, increases in output and land improvement, but also urban growth, agriculture became much more productive. Institutions such as enclosures and large farms are said to have increased productivity by encouraging farmers to adopt those new crops and techniques. However, there is little direct evidence for the actual impact of changes in land tenure on agricultural productivity. Indeed, the consequences of the enclosure movement on agricultural productivity has been a deeply debated topic in English economic history. The Bing-Bang was a trigger for the agricultural revolution.
(trade.ec.europa.eu) The highest expectations are expected from the world’s largest economies, the governments of America and Europe. In addition, deeply help conviction in many parts of the world must be recognized. Like in Brazil, the agricultural trade in the developed world has been considerably sheltered in the past, and today, has a need to reach the liberal rules that are applied in other areas. (trade.ec.europa.eu) Even though the GATT was built on the expectation on leadership from the United States and the countries of Europe, rights and responsibilities will be shared in new ways in the new global economy. The WTO system and international institutions that make these changes in the global economy happenable, is creating openness.
Microcredit is a powerful tool to self-empower the poor people particularly women at world level and particularly in developing countries. Microcredit activities can give them a means to climb out of poverty. From early 1970’s women movement in number of countries increasing to improve poverty through micro credit programs. The problem of women less access to credit was given a particular concentration at first. The deficient in credit convenience implies that poor people borrow from money lenders at very high of interest per year, but they are generally doing so not to make long term useful investments but to meet short term consumption needs (Morduch, 1998).
Women play a major economic role in driving globalization, mainly because they participate in worldwide agriculture, small and micro-enterprises, and export-processing industries. Without including household labor and informal economic activity, women encompass 854 million workers of the global workforce. (Montour, p.397) Gender differences in education and work experience contribute to a gender wage gap. Gender differences in education and employment have narrowed over time. The gender differences in the impact of education on employment vary considerably across institutional contexts.
Often contributions of women in this economy are ignored, and their work is also underestimated. Gender discrimination reduces the chances for the women to eliminate poverty and also to improve their lives. The Inequality between women and men are found i.e. women have little access to resources which leads to the slow growth in this economy. Women empowerment in the economy increases participation of women in labor force and it reduces poverty in the economy, access of women farmers to the resources increase production and they can also support their families, and as women are the owners of property and earn money from it.
The authors identify three different situations based on the World Bank’s 2008 World Development Report: the agriculture based countries, transforming countries as well as urbanized countries. Most countries have evolved over the years moving from agricultural based to transforming countries and this is demonstrated with a graph from the World Bank. They then identify the peculiarities of peasant farming in Asia (overcrowded people on few lands), Latin America (latifundios and minifundios ) and Africa (subsistence agriculture) examining the sizes of farmland and distribution also using graphs. The next section highlights the important role of women in agriculture in developing countries. According to the paper, the role of women is mostly ignored by government and policy makers although women are the main practitioners of subsistence farming to maintain the livelihood of their families.
Firstly, of those rural women who were classified as workers, a greater proportion worked in agriculture when compared with men, as comparatively fewer women workers were in the non-farm sector; and secondly, women’s share in the total number of agricultural workers is increasing overtime leading to their increased involvement in agriculture. As men migrate to urban areas and to non-farm sectors in response to both the distress in agriculture and better job opportunities elsewhere, women’s responsibility both as workers and as farm managers has been growing, leading to an increased feminization of agriculture. One emerging issue of major concern is the issue of girl child labour. Most of the girl labourers belong to the scheduled caste and scheduled tribe households, poor backward castes and other such

Nonetheless, though tremendous achievements have been made, Rwandese are still poor and real progress shall be realized by shifting government support from a male dominated business environment to both-sex business setting. This will only be possible when women entrepreneurship is developed, supported and sustained in the country. Therefore, there is need for the government of Rwanda to fully encourage and support women entrepreneurship growth and development through training and accessing financial services so as to have an economic development in which both sex have equal participation. The main purpose of this study on the facilitative role of the government in women entrepreneurship development was to assess the extent at which women are
Earlier, women had productive value in agriculture. But with industrialisation, when new economic opportunities began to grow for men, their income earning capacity increased while women got relegated to their homes. Those women who were born richer thus got the upper hand and they were able to compete for better and higher income earning husbands. This is how dowry developed (Anderson 2007). Cultural
