The Plight of Rural Women Discussed at the UN + Tweets from Day 1


Over the next few weeks the United Nations Commission of the Status of Women is holding high level talks about rural women. I tweeted during the opening session and general discussion. I have included some of my tweets along with pertinent tweets of others who shared information from Day 1.

I have a great interest in the plight of rural women as I was able to meet many in Kenya when I traveled to Africa last summer with ONE. In fact, I wrote about how collectives in dairy farming can better improve the lives of women living in rural Kenya. You can read my article, One Cow Can Change an Entire Community, on Care2.com.
