This week’s news stories about Ugandan women producing sunflower oil and Congolese men turning away from agriculture remind us of the importance of women farmers. Their work not only provides food and income for their families, but also contributes to local food security. This week’s script features two women farmers who share some of the secrets to their success, as well as a village chief who says the work of women farmers should be more highly valued.
