Women and the Right to Food

Author: Isabella Rae (FAO Right to Food Team)

Right to Food Study, 2008.

Specific issues looked at: How much of women's hunger and food insecurity is a matter of health alone and not one of life, survival and development?

How much is denial of food for women a matter of violation of "mothers' rights", or of "children's rights" rather than one of "women's rights"? How much of food insecurity and eating disorders is a matter of health and disease, or of violation of human rights?
