Who's the Farmer?
Women in India often spend most of their lives working on their husband's farm while never being able to own the land. Indeed, around the world, women make up an average of 43 percent of the agricultural labor force (you can learn a little more about this in our June 2011 Breadcast episode on agriculture and malnutrition in Uganda) but lack the power to improve their farms through new farming techniques and technology - all because they don't own the land. This short video looks at an organization that's attempting to change that.
This story is part of our Wednesday ViewChange video series.
