dc.description.abstractStudies have revealed that there exist gender inequality in access and control of resources, benefits and opportunities in the society including agricultural resources and benefits. This may influence the provision of household welfare by men and women. This informed the concern of this study which sought to identify the strategies that can be put in place to promote gender equality in access and control of land and dairy products for improved household welfare. The study was done in Murang’a County-Kenya. The study was guided by the Marxist Feminism theory and Women Empowerment Framework advanced by Friedrich Engels and Sarah Longwe respectively. It was a cross-sectional research study focusing on both qualitative and quantitative data. Kigumo Sub County was purposively sampled as the area of the study. In addition, a simple random sampling technique was used to select a total of four hundred and forty-two (442) male and female headed households practicing dairy farming in the Sub-county as the respondents of the study. The key informants of the study were community leaders and key county officers. For data collection the study utilized interview schedules for the selected household heads, guided questionnaires for the key informants and an observation checklist. Qualitative data was analyzed on the basis of themes derived from the study objective while quantitative data was analyzed using SPSS. The study identified and recommended gender awareness raising, enhancement of adult education program, enforcement of legal requirements on human rights as the main strategies for enhancing gender equity on access and control over land and dairy products for enhanced household welfare.en_US
