Women make up 40 percent of
the farmers and farm workers around the world. They grow, harvest and manage
much of the food we eat, from the California strawberry fields to tea
plantations in Sri Lanka. Panelists Sandy Brown, Assistant Professor and
Faculty Director of the Master of Public Affairs Program at USF, Rosalinda
Guillen, Executive Director, Community to Community Development, and Irit
Tamir, Senior Campaigns and Advocacy Adviser, Oxfam International, will discuss the
unique issues plaguing women farmers and workers, on farms large and small, in
the U.S. and across the world.
