Gender-related social norms dictate how men and women act in society, the roles they play and the behaviors they aspire towards. Social norms can be a barrier to women participating in economic activities and in agriculture innovations (new farming techniques). A meta-analysis of agriculture evaluations in Pakistan and Ethiopia was commissioned to find out what works for gender norm change in agricultural projects. Unfortunately results and knowledge from projects and evaluations are not widely shared or published. Additionally, evaluations that lack rigor miss out on capturing gender norm changes. The research undertaken contributes to a literature gap on what works to change gender-related social norms in rural Pakistan and Ethiopia.
