Women and food sovereignty: voices of rural women of the south

Friends of the Earth, International have produced a document presenting powerful testimonies that reflect the situation of rural women in Latin America, Africa and Asia.  

Their testimonies allow greater understanding of their roles in both economic production and sustenance of life, tasks often carried out exclusively by the community's female members.

In addition, to resistance towards industrial agriculture and land grabbing, the testimonies show alternative approaches to the agribusiness model.  Many of the actions taken by women to fight for their rights are in fact traditional practices they have recovered and sustained.

Read their testimonials here.
