Happy International Day of Rural Women!
The International Day of Rural Women recognizes “the critical role and contribution of rural women, including indigenous women, in enhancing agricultural and rural development, improving food security and eradicating rural poverty.” (UN)
To celebrate this day, here are a few photos from the Finnish Wartime Photograph Archive, maintained by the National Defence University’s Production department. See more photos at http://sa-kuva.fi.
I searched for pictures of home front in 1939-1945, when women took care of the farms during the wars – and thanks to their hard work, ad the ever-so-humble Finnhorses by their side, Finnish people were able to survive through some very tough times. :)
AND, people still need food every day, so keep on going, rural women and men everywhere! :)
