Letters from rural women

Authors/editor(s): Rural women of Kyrgyzstan/Nuriya Imankulova, Elena Voronina, Gulmira Rasulova

This collection of letters from rural women in Kyrgyzstan was part of a joint UN Women, FAO and WFP economic empowerment project to build a dialogue between rural women and the municipal and private institutions providing them local services. This case study details what happened after project members analysed the stories in the letters and traveled from village to village to run campaigns to curb discrimination and violence against women and girls and help them earn economic, political and social rights and increased access to local health care services.
