IWA Chair Azra Sayeed delivering an intervention @CFS 44
Updated: Feb 15, 2022
“Patriarchy, feudalism and the current neoliberal economic models are the three main root causes for women’s inequality and food insecurity and malnutrition. Patriarchy, feudalism and neoliberalism are grabbing our lands, water, seeds, forests and natural resources, our territories, our bodies and rights; they ignore the ancestral knowledge of our indigenous sisters, criminalise our struggles, leave violence against women unpunished while opening the door to discrimination, conflict, crises, occupation, displacement and war.”
