In many parts of the world, women do most of the work producing food, yet do not share in the wealth from it. In Ghana for example women perform 70 percent of the work but own a small fraction of the land. African women are working to correct this imbalance. You’ll hear how in this episode from interviews with Susan
Watkins who spearheads partnerships for Canadian Feed The Children that support women’s economic empowerment through agri-business. And Grace Biniyam Kursah specializes in women’s economic empowerment in Ghana. Some of the work they are doing to empower women farmers is inspiring. Visit canadianfeedthechildren.ca/podcast
