Women farmers play a fundamental role in ensuring food security in rural societies. Empowering women to farm organically can increase yields, provide a greater nutritional diversity of fruit and vegetables, and increase household income from surplus sales. To honor the UN’s International Day of Rural Women, we have compiled seven stories of exemplary rural women working to make a difference in organic agriculture.
