Rural Women Day tomorrow


Islamabad—International Rural Women Day will be observed on Saturday (Oct 15) annually to reflect women’s key role in development process and contribution of rural women who are vital to agriculture based economy.
Rural women are key agents for achieving transformational economic, environmental and social changes required for sustainable development. But limited access to credit, health care and education are among the many challenges they face, which are further aggravated by the global food and economic crises and climate change.—APP
