Published on 09 March 2011

With gender equality being important for reduction of poverty and hunger, Bangladeshi women are playing a critical role in World Food Programme's work to break the cycle of hunger and create food secure communities. "WFP Bangladesh commemorates International Women's Day by renewed efforts to prioritise women in all our operations, and by underlining the value of involving men in the struggle to eradicate gender gaps and achieve lasting equality," said Christa Rader, WFP Bangladesh Representative.
