Women in Agriculture

This piece focuses on the role of women in agriculture on a global scale. Interesting stats included in the piece: a) 79% of economically active women in developing countries report agriculture as their main source of income; b) in 15 EU countries, women hold 20% of agricultural land compared to the 77% held by men and 3% by government; and c) Women comprise around 43% of the agricultural labour force in the developing world but only 62% are paid for their work. This will be added to Agriculture Resources Subject Tracer™.
