A day in the life of a female farmer in France
Date created :
With France's agricultural fair in full swing, we take a look at female farmers. One in four farmers in France is now a woman, up from 8% some 50 years ago. French women have always played a key role in agriculture, but they only gained the same legal rights as their male counterparts in 2011. Since then, more and more women have decided to step out of their husbands' shadows and become farm managers. Our reporters profile a female farm boss in Brittany, western France.
