Why is International Rural Women's Day important?

On a global scale, societal barriers and discriminatory social norms continue to limit women’s decision-making powers in rural households and communities. In many areas around the world, women and girls in rural areas lack equal access to productive resources and assets, and access to basic public services, such as education, health care, water and sanitation. Much of women's labour remains invisible and unpaid.

"Today, UN Women calls on partners everywhere to build on this momentum and galvanize efforts to advance rural women’s voice and agency, their livelihoods, rights and resilience to ensure that they can continue to cultivate good food for all."  - International Day of Rural Women: Rural Women Cultivating Good Food for All
