A reflection on gender and agriculture-IWD 2014


On sturday, the 8th of March, the world will celebrate International Women’s Day. This years theme is “Equality for women is progress for all”. While the world has made a lot of progress in closing gender gaps and empowering women, a lot still needs to happen. This years theme reminds us that gender equality has benefits for whole households, communities, and countries.

Reflecting on where we are on agriculture, I revisited the TEDx Washing Circle: Igniting Change where Ruth Meinzen-Dick and Agnes Quisumbing of the International Food Policy Insitute and I talked about progress and approaches that work in empowering women in agriculture. Watch and be inspired!
