Policy Unity Agrarian Women
The Irish minister Coughlan (Agriculture and Food) seriously considers starting a policy unit concerned with matters regarding agrarian women. The policy unit shall be a part of the ministry of Agriculture and Food.
The minister will discuss the idea with the farmer committee. She has already found support with Mary McGreal, president of the Farm Family Committee of the Irish Farmers Association.
McGreal announced that she will present a number of concrete proposals for the new policy unit.
The minister believes that the unit is justified by the rapid growth of women who perform the daily activities on the farm when their partner must work outside the farm.
