International Day of Rural Women is observed on October 15 each year to celebrate the unvetted contribution of women in agricultural development, in building climate resilience, and thus, strengthen economies. However, such women are often left behind by their male counterparts in the world mired by gender inequality, discriminatory social norms, and the fast-changing economic and environmental landscape.
 
On this International Day of Rural Women 2021, United Nations has highlighted the crucial role that rural women and girls play in ensuring sustainable development in the lives of rural communities.
 
International Day of Rural Women 2021 Theme :
As per the UN, the organisation believes that empowering women is not only bringing gender equality but also reversing issues of food insecurity, providing them proper health care and education and preventing them from being underpaid. It also acknowledges their integral contribution towards ensuring the world has fresh food on their plates, hence the theme assigned this year(2021) is -- 'Rural Women Cultivating Good Food for All'. According to UN Women, low income, lack of agricultural land-holding rights, child marriage, life-threatening complications during pregnancy and many more complex issues have refrained rural women from the deserved recognition.
