dc.description.abstract Research determined that all-women organizations in Haiti find niche markets to challenge socially constructed gendered norms assigned to food production. Gender Central Frameworks (GCF) challenge gendered barriers that prevent women from obtaining necessary capabilities for success. The outcome is improved access to practical needs for food procurement. This GCF approach creates sustainable solutions because the change occurs within the person and the organization, which also acts as a social network. GCF has the potential to address food security at larger scales. en
