Recognise rural women's right to agriculture

Speakers tell press confce

A national dialogue will be held in Manikganj on October 30 with a call to ensure rural women's right to food and agriculture, said the speakers at a press conference yesterday.
They said the dialogue would be arranged to mark the World Rural Women's Day on October 15.
The press conference was organised by Nari Sangbadik Kendro (Centre for women journalists), Bangladesh Resource Centre for Indigenous Knowledge (BARCIK) and Steps Towards Development at Dhaka Reporters' Unity auditorium.
The speakers said rural women had played an important role in food management but laws or policies did not recognise their contribution.
"Women's right have to be ensured and their contribution to agriculture management should be admitted," they added.
Ferdousi Akhter of BARCIK presented a written speech at the press conference while Nasimun Ara Haque Minu and Parveen Sultana, president and general secretary of Nari Sangbadik Kendro, Rekha Saha, director of Steps Towards Development and Pavel Partho, programme officer of BARCIK spoke on the occasion.
