Dolan, Catherine (1999) Conflict and Compliance: Christianity and the Occult in Horticultural Exporting. Gender and Development, 7 (1). pp. 23-30.
The introduction of new export crops in the early 1990s upset the customary division of labour between men and women in Meru District, Kenya, and led to conflict over land, labour, and income. Women's workload increased; their earnings did not. They responded by turning to 'born-again' Christianity for support, and by resorting to traditional witchcraft to regain control.
