Hunger Report: Executive Summary
“The Institute’s 2015 Hunger Report shows why women’s empowerment is vital to ending global hunger and poverty. Women are the primary agents the world relies on to fight hunger. In developing countries, most women work in subsistence farming, the backbone of local food security. Women the world over feed and nourish their children.
Discrimination against women is a major cause of persistent hunger. The 2015 Hunger Report analyzes the ways in which this plays out in the household, the economy, and politics and calls for a more comprehensive, holistic approach to women’s empowerment.”
