Women as Change Agents in the World’s Rangelands: Synthesis and Way Forward

D. Layne Coppock, Maria E. Fernandez, Jeannie Harvey


This special issue of Rangelands contains accounts of “rangeland women” in a wide array of contexts: ecological settings varying from the cold valleys of the High Andes to the warm savannas of Kenya, socioeconomic settings varying from modern US ranches to the isolated culture of Afghan pastoralism, and professional settings varying from the cattle stations of Australia to the halls of academia. In this synthesis we consolidate and comment on major themes from the 11 contributed papers and close by offering ideas for future research, education, and policy.
