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!
