    Being a mother is hard work and today we honor and celebrate women around the world with inspired messages and gratitude for all that it is to be a mother. Words cannot express how thankful I am to be a mom and for the love and guidance my mother gave to me. While there is reason to celebrate each and every mother, the unacceptable fact remains that violence against women—many of them mothers—continues around the world. This has become ever more apparent over the past several months in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where Equal Exchange partners with Panzi Hospital and Foundation, supporting their holistic approach to treating victims of sexual violence.

    I came away from a recent visit to our cacao partner CONACADO with a feeling of tremendous appreciation for the way that co-operative has promoted women in roles that traditionally are assigned to men. I have even more appreciation for the strong women who have taken opportunities for leadership and have excelled, despite the challenges. According to the organization Farming First, “female farmers receive only 5% of all agricultural extension services from 97 countries, [and] only 15% of the world’s extension agents are women.”
