Messages of support

Former President of the United States of America - Washington
Bill Clinton
" Warm greetings to all those observing International Rural Women’s Day 1998. Today, on farms and ranches around the world, an estimated one billion women are making vital contributions to the agricultural industry. As small farmers, entrepreneurs, labourers, policymakers and scientists, women produce most of the food in developing countries and manage many of the natural resources in those countries [...] Let us renew our commitment to empowering these hardworking individuals with the tools they need to build stronger families, better communities and healthier lives. Hillary joins me in extending best wishes to all for a memorable observance.[1998] "
