This month, at the UN headquarters in New York, the 62nd Assembly of the UN Commission on the Status of Women will be held.  One of the two themes being discussed is the empowerment of women and girls in the rural world.

In this Assembly, two MEPs, one of them Basque, have presented a report, commissioned by the European Parliament, and approved by it on March 1.  This report includes contributions from the Basque Statute on Women Farmers.

Basque MEP Izaskun Bilbao (about whom we’ve already spoken on many occasions), the vice president of the ALDE group, is one of the two speakers for the report before the European Parliament.  Alongside the other speaker, Angela Vallina, they’ve also presented this report to the UN Commission Assembly on the Status of Women.

This is a topic that seems enormously important to us, which is why we so wanted to discuss it.  Unfortunately, we came across this “by accident”, and when we started looking up more news about it, we could barely find any in the media.  We couldn’t even find the European Parliament report, nor the one at the UN assembly from this month.  That’s why we’re using the information shared by the MEP herself (or her group).

DAR UNA OPORTUNIDAD A LA IGUALDAD, QUE “LO OTRO” LO CONOCEMOS

Hoy me ha parecido simbólico, interesante, un buen recurso de comunicación emplear en la sede de las Naciones Unidas en Nueva York un remedo de la famosa estrofa del “Give Peace a chance” de John Lennon para defender que la incorporación de las mujeres en condiciones de igualdad a los medios de producción de alimentos de todo el mundo es una de las claves de la viabilidad del planeta.
