Abstract:This paper argues that although women are the major producers of income-generating crops in Uganda's dominant peasant households, they are marginalized concerning major decisions and control of resources. Household and meso-level marketing structures and institutions are within patriarchal power relations, and women have to reposition themselves vis--vis household resources through direct and indirect struggle. There are, however, also cases of mutual cooperation. There have been gradual changes, especially during the era of reforms. However, these have not yet achieved women's empowerment and institutional transformation for the meaningful positioning of women with regard to household resources. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum.
