A Tribute from Corteva Agriscience™ to the International Rural Women’s Day
Women farmers account for more than a quarter of the global farming population. They plow the land, plant the seeds and feed nations. They are indispensable to agriculture and continue to pursue their space. A space with easy access to technology, land and funding. A space full of opportunities and free of prejudice.
In the last few months, we travelled all around the globe looking for stories. Stories of women farmers who faced difficulties, overcame obstacles and succeeded. We found several of them. These stories and these women are everywhere, in Brazil, the United States, China and Kenya. We believe they are a source of inspiration.
So, here, dear woman farmer, is a bit of your story. And we, from Corteva Agriscience™, would love to be a part of it. Happy International Rural Women’s Day.
Today we’re celebrating the United Nation’s International Day of Rural Women. Women in small towns and villages, on farms and ranches, are making a difference, and this week we’re celebrating their stories. We’re sharing the stories of women farmers who have faced difficulties, overcome obstacles and succeeded in the face of great adversity. Welcome to our web series, This is My Story.
