Today we’re celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11 Feb 2019) by celebrating the women and girls who are making research-based livestock development happen.
Those of us at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), who work in Africa, Asia and Latin America to reduce poverty, hunger, disease and environmental degradation through livestock- and research-based interventions, have put together images of ‘women in livestock development’.
Each of these ‘WILD women’ from ILRI, from our partner organizations and from around the world is making a difference through livestock-related work.
Join ILRI in enjoying, and celebrating, the achievements of women and girls in science today!
And please remember—
Millions of women lifting themselves and their families out of absolute poverty matter to livestock development.
And livestock development matters to millions of women lifting themselves and their families out of absolute poverty.
