International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is also a day to raise awareness about the ongoing struggle for gender equality and the many challenges that women continue to face around the world.

In agriculture, women play a crucial role in feeding the world’s population, yet they often face significant barriers to accessing resources and opportunities. Unfortunately, women are still frequently excluded from decision-making processes and have limited access to land, credit, and other key resources. Despite these challenges, women in agriculture are making significant contributions to their communities and the global food system.

They are innovating, finding new farming techniques, promoting sustainable agriculture, and advocating for policies that support women’s rights and empowerment.

This International Women’s Day, let us celebrate the contributions of women in agriculture and commit to working towards a more equitable and sustainable future for all.

 

Happy International Women’s Day from the Women in Ag Mag team.
