The 51%

What do women farmers bring to the table?

In this special edition, Annette Young heads to Italy where 40 percent of its farmers are female. We ask whether women are leading an agricultural revolution while meeting two young Italian women who are challenging traditional farming methods. We also meet Brave Ndisale from the Food and Agriculture UN organization FAO who are seeking to boost the number of women farmers in poorer nations.


'The 51 Percent' will be taking a break over the European summer and will return at the end of August with a brand new series.
