Global Hunger Is Solvable If U.S. Invests In Women

Roll Call: Women Key to Ending Global Hunger
Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) and Ritu Sharma, co-founder and president of Women Thrive Worldwide

“… The Global Food Security Act promotes sustainable, lasting solutions to hunger and poverty. And it does so by targeting our efforts to where they will have the biggest impact: empowering women and local communities. Hunger is a solvable problem. The U.S. has a unique opportunity to partner with women around the world to create long-term food security for all. We must seize this opportunity to invest in women, improve the health of millions of people, and promote stability and security around the world” (3/21).
