Gender inequality is often relegated to a challenge for countries far away from us.
The challenges of Indian women who do not have equal rights to education, access to land, financial services, and technologies. The difficulties of women being considered without equal respect, or all the women working informally, without decent pay or social rights in Asia and Africa. These are aspects that inevitably have repercussions throughout the global system and more acutely in the agri-food sector, where they are the main protagonists as I have already touched in my previous articles here and here.
Yet the real paradox of gender inequality is that it is a global plague, afflicting North and South equally.
