On 6th March 2018, Farming First will be launching a new campaign on empowering rural women. We will continue its promotion throughout the Commission on the Status of Women until 20th March 2018. We encourage you to gather stories and content featuring women who have managed to bridge the gender gap in agriculture for promotion during this period. This may include:

  1. Blogging about women you work with on your website, linking to the Farming First campaign when it launches
  2. Sharing graphics, videos and existing stories on social media with the campaign hashtag, when revealed
  3. Creating your own multimedia content for promotion during the campaign
