Poster portraying the struggles of women in the agriculture industry (11” x 17”)

Description

Empower portrays how women and organizations are advocating for justice for women in the agriculture industry. The words in black represent how women often feel working in this industry, and the words in pink represent what women are fighting for. Included in this poster are also quotes from various women and organizations around the world explaining their own perspectives and experiences. This is an international issue that affects communities across the globe, and we must educate people on how this relates to intersectionality. Women deserve to have their voices heard and to be lifted up, and I hope this piece of art empowers us and women in agriculture to make an impact.
