Demonstrating how SAPs impact gender dynamics in rural and urban production, the authors draw attention to specific social and cultural practices in Zambia that hinder their effectiveness. In addition, focusing on the historical links between town and countryside which current SAPs accentuate, they point out another problem area. Married women it is argued experience additional problems because of the demands their culturally constructed relation to husbands place on their labour and output. -from Authors
