We bring to your attention these recent reports relating to various women’s issues:
- Why the emphasis must be on women
- Involvement of Rural Women
- 100 seafood CEOs, one woman _ Undercurrent News
AwF made a presentation at the Women in Aquaculture session at World Aquaculture Adelaide in June specifically highlighting how important women were in projects that we have done to date and how little recognition they have received overall. The ‘Involvement of Rural Women’ article gives some practical tips for dissemination of technology for rural women and the ‘Undercurrent News’ report highlights a major problem regarding women in higher positions in the industry.
We are making progress with our Women’s Network and these reports simply highlight why such a network is necessary.
