WOMEN IN AG SCIENCE
EMPOWER. EDUCATE. CONNECT.
In this piece, we explore how womanhood, gender roles, and agriculture are interconnected. We unravel the mysteries of our identity, define important terms, and provide a philosophical perspective on what it means to be ourselves.
We've created a new section called Mini Profiles to increase highlights and stories that are simple and easy to read.
Are you a woman in ag science? We encourage any women in ag-related work including scientists, farmers, organizers, etc. Submit your story here!
