Throughout the world, the vast majority of women are faced with conditions of access to land and control of land and natural resources that are unequal to those of men.
Social relations have trivialized the fact that they are entirely in charge of domestic work and the education of children, which prevents them from devoting themselves as much as men to agricultural activities.
