Women in agriculture to speak Tuesday at UC Davis

By
From page A3 | January 19, 2014 |

Women with roles in global and local agriculture, food and nutrition will share their experiences Tuesday at a free public event on the UC Davis campus.

The event — “Women Feeding the World: Farmers, Mothers and CEOs” — will be from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the Conference Center Ballroom east of the Vanderhoef Quad.

Three main panelists will be featured: Jessica Lundberg of Lundberg Family Farms near Chico; Sonja Hess, a researcher in the UCD department of nutrition; and Swe Swe Win, a Humphrey fellow visiting from Myanmar and part of the United Nations World Food Programme.

The event is inspired by author Nicholas Kristof’s “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide,” the focus of the 2013-14 Campus Community Book Project. The project was initiated in response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to promote dialogue and build community by encouraging members of the campus and community to read the same book and attend related events.

The evening will include presentations by women who will share their experiences in agriculture, nutrition, leadership and motherhood. An online photo gallery with accompanying stories that illustrate women’s contributions to food and agriculture as well as more information about the event and the Campus Community Book Project are available at http://occr.ucdavis.edu/ccbp2013/womenfeedingtheworld.html.
