In addition to ethnicity, age, or disability, gender in the Somali region of Ethiopia strongly intersects with pastoralism, a predominant livelihood in East Africa and the Horn.
This paper explores how the overlap of a double marginalized identity produces particular disadvantages for pastoralist women in Ethiopia, and how an Oxfam intervention in the Somali region is addressing the connection between these disadvantages and poverty and power.
