AMING, NURUDDIN A. , University of' the Philippines Los Banos. College Laguna, December 2004. Participation of Filipino Muslim Wornen in Seaweed Farming in Sitangkai, Tawi-Tawi, Philippines. Major Professor: Dr. Federico A. Cruz
This study investigated the profile of Filipino Muslim women engaged in seaweed farming in the province of Tawi-Tawi; assessed the ways by which they participated in seaweed culture, looked into their involvement in decision-making pertaining to household and seaweed culture, and determined the social, cultural and economic factors that were associated with their participation in seaweed farming.
Sample of 246 Muslim women were respondents from four barangays in the municipality of Sitangkai using stratified proportionate sampling technique. Questionnaires and interview guides supplemented with direct observation were used to get the information. Chi-Square test was used to measure association between the independent and dependent variables.
Findings revealed that Muslim women farmers were relatively young, had an average age of 39 years, and reached only elementary education. They had inadequate media exposure, low membership in rural organizations and very limited contact with development workers.
Extent of participation in seaweed farming was high. They were actively involved in seaweed culture activities from planting the seedlings to selling the product.
Muslim women were actively involved in household decision making. husbands and wives, however. had equal responsibility in making--decisions on Matters pertaining to household activities. Decision-making on seaweed farming was consultative in nature.
Factors found to be related to extent of participation of women in seaweed farming were traditionalism and attitude towards non-seaweed farming activities. Average level of productivity for the past three years was highly associated to joint husband and. wife family decisions and the degree of exposure to various forms of media.
