International Day of Rural Women History
International Day of Rural Women seeks to raise awareness about the role that women and girls play in their households and communities. Rural refers to either the countryside or just outside towns and cities. As such, women and girls have a greater responsibility when it comes to maintaining their homes and communities. This day highlights that.
Rural women and girls contribute to agricultural development and are often responsible for improving food security. They are also responsible for eliminating rural poverty. International Day of Rural Women was first observed in 2008 by the UN. It is observed annually on October 15th.
