Women's Values and Cash Cropping in a New Guinea Village

To do anthropological field research to ascertain the relationship between women's values and the failure of cash cropping in a New Guinea village. PI hypothesizes that failure occurs since the women traditionally dominate in horticulture, and because they are relatively uninterested in increasing the access to and availability of money. The potential disharmony between the value system of the women and that of the men leads of a questioning of self-worth on the part of the men and to feelings of high self-esteem for women.
