Women agricultural workers and the right to adequate food and nutrition

This paper was published by FIAN International for Hands off the Land Alliance

The publication "Women agricultural workers and the right to adequate food and nutrition" was written by FIAN in consultation with several civil societies and the IUF under the Hands Off the Land project. 

It aims to shed light on the discriminatory working conditions women agricultural workers endure in industries where women have traditionally constituted a significant share of the workforce, and provides an analysis of these conditions from a human right to adequate food and nutrition perspective in order to offer recommendations to states about how to address them.
