Welcome to day one of GROW week! Today we are celebrating The International Day of Rural Women. Every day for the next seven days, we will keep you updated on events happening all over the world, to coincide with GROW week and World Food Day (October 16).
Around the world, women are being celebrated as food producers in exciting ways. More than a third of the world's female workforce is engaged in agriculture, while in regions like Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, more than 60 per cent of all female employment is in this sector.
