Agroecology and Feminism: Transforming our society and our economy

Agroecology, food sovereignty, climate justice and antipoverty economics aim to value all life by ending power relations, including sexism, racism and every form of discrimination. A women’s movement with a practical perspective on agroecology, includes all who identify as women and/or as antisexist, not only to create spaces free of discrimination but to revalue the ‘unseen’ work that mainly women and gender marginalised people do. The global economy could not function without this work. Our struggle for its recognition is integral to creating a future centred on the survival and wellbeing of the human race and the natural world. This panel explores the obstacles women and gender marginalised people face when building the agroecological movement, and how we can act together to overcome them and build humane relationships.
