Female county agents with agricultural program responsibilities consist of only about 11.4% of the total population. The study discussed here created a profile of women employed by the Cooperative Extension Service with agricultural program responsibilities at the county level. A mail questionnaire was sent to a census of the population (N = 488). Despite a high level of job satisfaction, almost 60% of the women felt they had experienced barriers and challenges in their profession as a result of gender.
