Agricultural Empowerment: The North Carolina Extension Service and the Farmerâ€™s Family
The Extension Service developed programs for rural families in the early twentieth century that promoted rural reform. One of the main goals of the Extension Service was to make farm families more efficient and productive. This exhibit examines the North Carolina Extension Service’s programs for women and children and the extent to which Extension efforts were beneficial and disadvantageous to those individuals.
This exhibit is part of a larger project: Agricultural Empowerment in Academics, Research, and Extension.
