GRASS CEILING’s coordinator attended the Left Feminism Forum at the European Parliament

On 7 March, at the Left Feminism Forum, Sally Shortall, Coordinator of GRASS CEILING, presented the situation of women in rural areas across Europe. While women often lead on socio-ecological transitions and progressive farming methods, they tend to have less access to land, finance and training than men. GRASS CEILING will work with women socio-ecological innovators across nine European countries over the next three years and facilitate interactions with bank managers, agricultural advisers and entrepreneurial experts. The project will also interact with men innovators to understand gender differences in access to resources and approaches to innovation.
