Stand with these remarkable musicians. Support poor women around the world.
Hunger is not about too many people and too little food. Power and politics determines who eats and who doesn't.
Three quarters of our planet's hungriest people live in rural areas, where most of them work as farmers, herders, or fishers. They are surrounded by the means to produce food, and yet many go hungry.
Meanwhile, fertile land and water are becoming scarce. Erratic growing seasons, water shortages and rising temperatures are already hurting farmers. Oxfam calculates that by 2015 over 375 million people will be affected each year by climate-related disasters like hurricanes and floods.
In many countries, women are the primary food producers. Yet women face hunger and poverty more frequently than men.
In honor of the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day in March 2011, a movement of musicians is teaming up with Oxfam America to fight poverty and hunger now and for generations to come.
