October 15 marks as the International Day of Rural Women. The day has been established by the General Assembly in its resolution 62/136 of 18 December 2007.
Rural women play a crucial role in agriculture, food security and nutrition, land and natural resource management, and rural enterprises. Now, since COVID-19 and their unique health needs in remote areas, they are less likely to have access to quality health services, essential medicines, and vaccines.
From the beginning of civilization, the contribution of men for the development of the world is as much as of women. The role of women is parallel in the history of the advancement of civilization. But still women and girls around the world are constantly being subjected to gender-based violence, specially the rural women are deprived of many fundamental rights.
