IWA Chair Azra Sayeed delivering an intervention @CFS 44

“Patriarchy,  feudalism  and  the  current  neoliberal  economic  models  are  the  three  main  root   causes  for  women’s  inequality  and  food  insecurity  and  malnutrition.  Patriarchy,  feudalism   and  neoliberalism  are  grabbing  our  lands,  water,  seeds,  forests  and  natural  resources,  our   territories,  our  bodies  and  rights;  they  ignore  the  ancestral  knowledge  of  our  indigenous   sisters,  criminalise  our  struggles,  leave  violence  against  women  unpunished  while  opening   the  door  to  discrimination,  conflict,  crises,  occupation,  displacement  and  war.”
