Women from nine countries in Southern Africa united at a gathering of the Rural Women’s Assembly to speak out regarding challenges they are facing as women farmers, as their countries seek to instate Farmer Input Subsidy Programmes (FISPs), which encourage industrial and chemical farming inputs, including use of GMOs. Women shared their concerns around forced loss of Indigenous seed varieties, and the violent impact of fertilizers and pesticides on lands, waters, and identities and lifeways—and laid down demands to their governments to right continuing injustices against rural women and the land.
