A feminist guide on the right to food and nutrition for women in rural areas.
The ‘common cooking pot’ has historical and political significance. At different moments in time it has been employed as a strategy to create a space within which women had the freedom to discuss politics and articulate actions of resistance and/or respond to severe economic and food crises. Although the practice is not “common” as such throughout the world, the political meaning and use of the ‘common cooking pot’ is seen across borders and contexts. On 19 October 2020 we- human rights practitioners, peasants, indigenous and rural workers- will be sharing the outcome of last year’s collective organizing and knowledge construction towards the creation of a feminist methodological guide on the right to food and nutrition for women in rural areas.
