Women Farmers Recognized On World Food Day As Vital To Food Security, Ending Poverty

International Business Times: World Food Day 2015: Female farmers hold the key to food security and ending poverty
“… ‘Women farmers play a crucial part in ending hunger,’ says Bettina Luescher, a communications officer for the World Food Programme in Geneva. ‘If women farmers had the same access to loans, land, seed, and selling their harvests on the markets, we think we could lift some 100 to 150 million people out of hunger. Isn’t that an amazing number?’…” (Smith, 10/16).
