Welcome to the WAF-Project!
We’ve got an exciting mission here. Women* have been feeding us since beginning of humankind. Either through caring for the seeds, harvesting, cooking, planting, transferring agricultural knowledge through generations, innovating, ensuring biodiversity, preserving food; you name it. And all this by often facing gender-based discrimination (not inheriting, sexual harassment on the field, less access to loans; you name it again) and carying higher burdens such as pregnancy or caring for children.
Sounds like they got some superpowers! Nevertheless we felt that there is a gap between their important role and their visibility. So we’d like to portray one of them every week.
Exciting stories to come!
