  • recognize women farmers for their role in feeding their families and fellow countrymen and for their productivity which helps maintain economic stability and stronger democracies;
  • ensure rural women have access to the tools and productive resources they need to engage in entrepreneurship; and
  • recommit to reducing limitations, breaking down barriers to success, and prioritizing initiatives that wholly support rural women farmers at the local level.
