Controlling Consumption: the Illusiveness and Pervasiveness of Gender Norms in the Ugandan Marketplace

Uganda, a traditional patriarchal society, is experiencing social dislocations as a result of women’s empowerment. Yet regardless of legislative and policy changes, gender norms still stratify the marketplace and limit the progress of women. We study how the dislocations are contained and gender stratifications reinforced through biases surrounding consumption.
