There you are, wearing hat or scarf with a clear look and a smile that embellish the face; the skin damaged by sun and the tenacity for shaking all obstacles on the way.

It was during the Fourth World Conference on Women(Beijing, 1995), when the idea of celebrating the World Day of the Rural Women came true, in order to dignify the role of them in the food production and security.
