Pritzker candidate Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim in France 24: Agriculture’s secret weapon: empowering women

Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, coordinator of the Indigenous Women and Peoples Association of Chad, works with women farmers in the landlocked African nation.

“There’s a lack of recognition of land rights to women both officially and traditionally — men normally have land and they distribute it to the boys, not the girls,” she told AFP.

“Most of the time women farmers are the ones feeding the communities whereas the men are selling and doing it for their businesses.”
