“Women warriors change the world. These women are leaders and change makers. Many women contribute to farming practices, food production, or subsistence farming where they are smallholder farmers who grow crops for survival and to meet their needs.
In turn, women “grow most of the world’s crops for domestic consumption and are primarily responsible for preparing, storing, and processing food (where) women play an instrumental role in both household and national food security.” (Agriculture VA).
So many aspects of life depend on women and their health. A woman’s health impacts the health of herself, her network and the community.”
