In the Hudson Valley, the future of farming is female

The farmer walked between the rows of newly planted greens. Pointing out the farm’s most popular spring mix and explaining why netting covered other rows, the farmer then walked over to one of the several greenhouses on the Bloomingburg property to discuss the tomato plants that were just beginning to creep their way up the string trellises.

A sun hat did little to stave off the unusual early spring heat while Melissa Phillips led the impromptu farm tour, but she didn’t seem bothered by the temperature as her 2-month-old son Griffin snoozed in a carrier against her chest. Phillips runs

Woman trains men to box in Egyptian agricultural heartland

BENI SUEF, Egypt, June 14 (Reuters) – Twice a week in a small gym room in the Egyptian city of Beni Suef, 36-year-old Sabah Saqr coaches young men and boys to box.

A woman coaching men may not be that unusual in the capital, but in Beni Suef, which lies 100 kilometres (60 miles) south of Cairo in an agricultural area, tradition often limits women’s roles.

“I started boxing by accident,” said Saqr, who was spotted by a coach impressed by her strength and energy. “I didn’t used to like it because I was worried about my face, about being

The WHO alcohol-pregnancy warning for childbearing women overlooks men, as usual

The World Health Organization is advising that “women of childbearing age” should be a focus of alcohol prevention efforts — regardless of whether they know they’re pregnant. The suggestion was included in an early draft of the organization’s global action plan on alcohol, which argues that anti-alcohol campaigns should target women specifically due to the risks alcohol poses to the health of a fetus. Yes, even a fictitious, does-not-yet-exist fetus.

Serbian Roma girl band sings for women’s empowerment | Lifestyle

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Their songs are about “women chained” in abuse witnessed by generations, or teenage brides being forced into marriage by their fathers. And they tell women to seek love, fight back and stand up for their right to be equal with men.
