October 15, 2017 is International Day of Rural Women. This international day initiated by the United Nations (UN) in 2008 supports gender equality and women's empowerment. It pays attention to the fact that in many countries women try to make their living by raising their own vegetables under poor and exhausting conditions.
International Day of Rural Women is points to the problem that rural women work hard but have no food security and suffer of rural poverty. It is a day to think things over and awake especially the western society to the global imbalance because so many women in rural areas do not have the option to buy their daily food but depend on what they raise in their gardens.
