With the financial crisis and climate crisis creating food crisis, something less talked about is the affect of these on women, particularly women in developing and under-priviliged nations.

Just read the article. It makes my heart sick, I don't know how else to say it.

No matter a woman's economic station or the country she comes from, it seems that women around the world - whether by choice or by circumstance - have to be 'Super Woman'. And especially in third world countries, when it's not a matter of living 'paycheck to paycheck', but meal to meal, I cannot imagine the incredible amount of stress it must put on these women to provide for their families.
