Women and the Fight Against Global Hunger

Gender equality is essential to alleviating hunger and poverty. Food is most likely to reach children in need when it is given to women. Women are most frequently the ones who prepare the food for the whole family and are the key to improving household food security and nutritional wellbeing.

Because of their essential role in ensuring food security, WFP puts women—mothers, girls, female farmers—at the center of their efforts to fight hunger and malnutrition, with a particular emphasis on the critical first 1,000 days of life. Register today!
