Check out the new Women’s Empowerment infographic ?

Courtney Lang from School May 20, 2015

Have you seen the new Women’s Empowerment infographic done by Fair Trade Certified yet? If not, make sure you check it out here: http://www.befair.org/

Did you know that women produce 50% of the world’s food, but only own 2% of the land? The graphic illustrates what women farmers typically have to endure, and how fair trade helps empower them and leads to a thriving community.

This is a great graphic to share in a newsletter, email, Facebook, or even to print out! Tell us how you’re using it to educate about women’s roles in farming and fair trade!

  1. I love the photo of the lady smiling and the quote stating how much she is proud of her heritage as a cacao/cocoa farmer and how she is preserving her heritage – a pride that she wants to instill in her children! it would be so sad to see these cultural traditions wiped out and reduced to boring autonomous processes by people who have no connection of pride in their work and who are not valued for their work either!
