Women in the Fields:  Farm Labor in the Global Food Supply Chain

Thursday, March 6 | 1:00-3:00pm | McLaren 252

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.

All forums are free and open to the public.
