Women's position and power in the forestry profession
Author(s): Saba Aziz Fatima and Neelma Kunwar
Some of the inability of women to benefit fully from social forestry projects must be traced back to their general position vis-à-vis men with regard to education and representation in national level decision-making forestry has been a particularly men dominated profession, more so ever than engineering and the defense forces in most developing countries. The first three female professional staff members were appointed to the enormous Indian forest department in 1979 (FAO/UNO, 1980). Although it is not necessarily the case that women foresters will automatically support programmes aimed at women folk in general, it is noticeable that most of the authors who have written in any detail about women and forestry are themselves female.
