Abstract
This research aimed to determine the gender profiles in cultivation and post-harvest of cassava farming. The location of the study was chosen based on cassava planting area in each district, namely the largest (Saptosari), medium (Tanjungsari), smallest (Purwosari), using descriptive analysis research method. The sampling was carried out by purposive sampling, on households that had cassava farming from three districts, where 20 households were selected from each district, so the total number of respondents was 60 households. The data collection techniques were observation, interview, and recording. The data analysis used graph assistance. In addition, gender analysis wasalso applied, covering 5 aspects: participation, access, control, benefits, and impacts. The result of this study showed that on cassava farming in Gunungkidul there iss good cooperation and role-sharing between women and men. The gender profile of cassava farming in Gunungkidul showed that in plant cultivation, male participation is greater than female participation, whereas in post-harvest activities female participation is relatively greater than male participation. Women's access and control are lower than those of men, except in marketing. Women and men feel the benefits of cassava farming. The real impact of the existence of cassava farming is an increase in women's consumptive behavior (purchasing clothes and food)
