This paper explores the changing roles of women in agricultural production in a patrilineal community of the Samia in Western Kenya. Work in farm activities is considered to be demeaning for men and woman and children are expected to be involved in agricultural production. This study shows that modern education takes children away from home leaving women to be the carriers of the double-burden of domestic and farm work.
