Abstract

The International Day of Rural Women was celebrated for the first time in 2008. Based on UN resolution 62/136 it recognizes “the critical role and contribution of rural women, including indigenous women, in enhancing agricultural and rural development, improving food security and eradicating rural poverty.” In this sense, the Workshop provides an overview of the situation of rural women in Europe and their crucial role in sustainable rural development. It informs about women's engagement in employment, decision-making and rural lives more generally as well as on how to close the gap between men and women regarding equal access to resources and business opportunities. In this respect, the role of funding from the CAP for rural women is also analysed.
