UN-rapporteur Olivier de Schutter and Priiti Darooka, director of PWESCR
PWESCR convinced the rapporteur to meet with women's organisations to get their perspectives on the right to food. 'It's a great opportunity. Usually we only get to talk to rapporteurs who work on specific 'women's issues' like violence against women. But it's very important to put women on the mainstream agenda. Because the right to food is a women's issue' says Priiti Darooka, executive director of PWESCR. Darooka: 'It is the only way we can hold governments accountable for women's poverty.' Mama Cash supports PWESCR in their struggle for recognition of women as producers of food and agricultural workers.
