Women of the Mexican Food Movement

Women of the Mexican Food Movement

In Mexico, there’s a strong cultural connection between women and food. Traditionally women are responsible for only the household activities. Nowadays, women are taking on more responsibilities, including maintaining farms and ranches, as men of the household move to the US for work. In turn, the greater involvement of women in the marketplace has facilitated for a larger influence of their ideals in sustainable, organic farming. While gender roles are still prominent, the appearance of women in the economic arena has allowed for their concerns of environmental and household health to be openly discussed. This, in turn, has sparked a local movement amongst communities striving for food sovereignty and resilient local economies.
