Women have been neglected in agricultural development in the past, raising their voices is critical for equalling development in future. In its recent report, the World Bank has heralded women’s vital role for poverty reduction and food security. At the same time it is evident that rural women’s efforts in food production, especially in post-harvest activities and crop seed processing are very important for community food security in Asian and African countries. Participatory video (PV) helps women farmers to raise their voices for agricultural development in Bangladesh. The proposed project will foster voices of 600 rural women through developing local capacities for ‘women-to-women’ PV development and dissemination in Bangladesh.
