The UN has dedicated October-15 as the International-Day of Rural Women. From agriculture to food-security, nutrition, land and natural resource management, domestic-care and work, rural-women are at the forefront and are taking charge by being in the driver's seat. They collect biomass fuels, process foodstuffs, pump and collect water; 80% of households without piped water rely on women and girls for water collection.
