Researchers aim to boost gender equity on Vietnam’s farms

Murdoch University in Western Australia is to lead an international research project to improve gender equity for women working on Vietnam’s coffee farms.

The Perth-based university has received a $240,000 federal government grant to work with humanitarian aid organisation CARE to support equal opportunity for women involved in agriculture in remote areas of north-west Vietnam.

The project will be led by development anthropologist Rochelle Spencer, who is based at the university’s centre for responsible citizenship and sustainability; and Jane Hutchison, who chairs the Asia research centre’s international studies programme.
