New interactive infographic entitled “The Female Face of Farming”.

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and Farming First have jointly launched this new interactive infographic.

The infographic consists of 17 individually-designed graphics, each of which tells a part of this important story. Each graphic can be Tweeted and/or embedded for use in presentations or blog posts. To view the full infographic, please click.

Launched in parallel with the ongoing UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) and ahead of International Women’s Day on 8th March, the infographic explores the key role that rural women play in agriculture.

Key questions addressed include:
- Why are women so important to agriculture?
- Where does the gender gap exist in agriculture?
- What are the impacts of the gender gap in agriculture?

Farming First invite all to take a closer look at the story of women in agriculture and to share this with your colleagues in any upcoming e-newsletters, via Twitter or on your blogs/websites.
