Voices from Women research project

In 2013 Brooke initiated the Voices from Women research project to explore the role of working horses, mules and donkeys in supporting the lives of women from the perspectives of the women themselves.

Voices from Women currently covers four countries - Ethiopia, Kenya, India and Pakistan - which have been involved in the first phase of the research.

From lightening women’s load of daily household chores to enabling them to earn an income, increasing their decision-making power and enhancing their status within the community, we found that working equines make a crucial difference to the lives of women in developing countries.
