Abstract

The paper identifies the technological improvements/innovations which can support the socio-economic well-being of rural women in Nigeria. It is a participatory observation study with some rural women in selected villages in Bendel State, Nigeria involved in gari processing. The study shows that there are positive and adverse effects of gari pro­cessing. The.introduction of the gari processing machine has eliminated some of the drudgery associated with the traditional method of processing and the processing is now done in a shorter time. It has however transferred part of the processing work which traditionally belongs to the women, to the men and has therefore deprived them of a source of income.
