march is women's history month- but by favorite day of this month (except for my birthday) is international women's day. today. march 8.
the above photo relates to my thesis and my passion for women farmers. and food.
essentially, i am writing that although they come from various cultures and backgrounds, women farmers in brazil, india and the united states, share a similar farming feminism. that is of course because most of these women farmers choose to farm organically (they boycott using pesticides and genetically modified seeds) and also try to keep their farming for subsistence use and/or small local profit.
the thesis will be long is obviously very multifaceted (i do plan to share it when it is finished and beautiful) but...
do think about where your food comes from and also consider the harm pesticides not only have on you when you eat produce that has been sprayed, but also the harm (and sometimes death) it brings to the farmers who must spray the crops (these tasks are usually left up to women and children).
if anything, be smart about your food choices and be a little better and spend a little more if you can to support local farmers who farm naturally and safely.
i am trying my best with the resources and options i have.
photo found here. great article too.
