Strengthening the strategic role of women in rural communities

The Common Agricultural Policy, particularly in its second pillar, contains measures and resources to improve gender equality and women’s access to work and economic activity. The gender equality gap is wider in rural areas than in cities.

More and more women are finding empowerment through agriculture. In turn, they guarantee the survival of rural communities and the growth of the rural economy.
