Gender Equity, Equality and Women’s Empowerment

Empowering women and girls is critical to achieving secure, sustainable and equitable global food systems. Feed the Future promotes evidence-based and data-driven approaches to advancing gender equity, equality and women’s empowerment. We challenge discriminatory gender norms, policies and practices. We intentionally engage with men and boys as partners to empower women and girls in their different roles on and off the farm.
