Key words: farmers, organization, gender
Abstract: This study discusses farmers' organizations from a gender perspective based on an empirical investigation in the Xinzhou District. It suggests that farmers' organization remains no long at a low level but also with significant gender differences. The gender differences are resulted of the combination of three factors, which are: the overlay of family-based traditional social organization and the patriarchal system, women's lack of organizational capacity caused by gender-based socialization and the patriarchal repression of women. Only when the gender differences have been addressed, the process of farmers' organizations can be advanced.
