    This study draws on some case studies of land reforms in different South Asian countries. These reforms came on the national and international agenda in a major way in the post- World-War II period and were led by the transition theory, requiring agriculture to provide both surplus and labor for the growth of a modern industrial economy and leading to focus on efficiency in agricultural production (which would release resources -capital and labor- for investment in the modern industrial sector), rather than on distribution.

    From the outset, the development of agriculture has been strongly associated with women’s endeavour. In fact, women’s contribution to agriculture goes back to the origins of farming and the domestication of animals when the first human settlements were established more than 6 000 years ago. Over the years, the division of responsibilities and labour within households and communities tended to place farming and nutrition-related tasks under women’s domain. Nowadays, in many societies women continue to be mainly responsible for family food security and nutrition.

    To achieve sustainable food systems and agriculture it is crucial to ensure equal opportunities to men and women in the distribution, tenure, governance and management of land and other natural resources, and address the asymmetric power relations, due to local traditions and socio-cultural factors. Despite their prominent role in the agriculture sector, women still suffer from limited land ownership, excessive workloads and inadequate access to services, local institutions, education and information.
