Today, the 15th October 2018, marks the International Day of Rural Women, a UN initiative that celebrates and honors the role of rural women across the world.
Rural women make up a quarter of the world’s population. They grow much of our food, strengthen economies and build climate resilience. Yet on almost every measure of development, because of gender inequalities and discrimination, they fare worse than rural men or urban women.
It’s time to give rural women a voice both in Africa and across the world! 💪🏼 🌍
