Women and Hunger: 10 Facts

World Food Programme

 

Extract from the article

 

Women are often victims of hunger. They also have a crucial role to play in defeating hunger. As mothers, farmers, teachers and entrepreneurs, they hold the key to building a future free of malnutrition. Here are ten reasons why empowering women is such an important part of WFP's work.

1.In developing countries, 79 % of economically active women spend their working hours producing food through agriculture. Women are 43% of the farming work force.


2.Yields for women farmers are 20-30 percent lower than for men. This is because women have less access to improved seeds, fertilizers and equipment.


3.Giving women farmers more resources could bring the number of hungry people in the world down by 100 - 150 million people.
