Tanzanian farmers mobilize against gender violence

February 25, 2011

A small-share farmers’ organization in Tanzania, MVIWATA, is taking a stand against domestic violence, sexual harassment, genital mutilation, women being deprived of food and water, forced into early marriage by rape.

In Tanzania, 80 percent of rural people living in extreme poverty are women.  Women farmers are subjected to acute social and economic exclusion and oppression. That is why MVIWATA has decided to mobilize against all forms of discrimination, and work towards building a society based on equality and justice.
