Abstract

This paper analyzes intra-household gender difference and women empowerment in agricultural index. A combination of multistage and random sampling technique was used. A total of 60 husbands and 60 wives were included in this study, selected from four kebeles proportional to the number of beneficiaries in the kebele. Descriptive statistics, t-test, and women empowerment in agricultural index were used for analysis. There was disparity between women and men; women were less empowered than men. Women’s empowerment index in agriculture was 73%. Meanwhile, the overall gender parity index was 68% and the empowerment gap was 32%. Based on results obtained; the study suggests different areas of intervention that could bridge the gap and help for future improvement in reducing major contributors to the disempowerment of women in agricultural extension service and the level of women’s empowerment in agriculture.
