The main argument advanced in my research is threefold: (1) to address the impact of gender and gendered participation in family farm business to expose women’s invisibilities and exclusions from full participation in rural family business, (2) to further knowledge of the position of women in the generational transfer of family business assets, particularly land; and 3) to more fully understand how gender inequalities operate through emotional responses of love and to gauge the impact of gender inequalities across three generations of farm women. A potential benefit of my research is to identify Western Canadian social historical structures and processes that produce and re-produce gender norms detrimental to equity and emancipation for all women.
