Women

Women… Still the culture demands the women kneel when they approach a man. But women now have a real say in how things happen, at least in rural areas. In towns I suspect they get a worse deal. It’s been lovely to have lots of women representing farmers in our meetings. They have heaps of respect. The farmers, in fact, are a really nice, gracious, generous, intelligent, humerous, humble bunch of people.

This is Sarah. She’s married to the local butcher, which you might think would keep her in check, but she is the leader of a farmers’ group of 20 families, and she certainly rules the roost. Albeit while kneeling to talk with us.
