Carly Fiorina Addresses Crowd Carly Fiorina Addresses Crowd

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFDTV) During RFD-TV's RURAL TOWN HALL, members of the FarmHer group attended and asked 2016 presidential candidate, Carly Fiorina, a question concerning women in agriculture. 

“I'm president and founder of FarmHer, and FarmHer focuses just on the women in agriculture. So at nearly a million strong, women are a significant and growing part of agriculture,” says Marji Guyler- Alaniz. “However distribution of resources and equitable access to capital needs more attention. The current administration has made significant efforts to increase awareness about women in agriculture. What could we expect to see from your administration regarding ways to further that dialogue regarding women in agriculture?”

“You know, it's so important because women are half the nation, and that means women are half the potential of the nation,” states Fiorina. “We lent $6 billion, $150 at a time, and lifted millions of people, mostly women actually, out of poverty in the developing world. Why do I start there? Because we know in the developing world that if you get more women engaged in agriculture, food production goes up.”

Watch Fiorina's complete answer in the video above and see how she addresses other issues important to rural Americans on RURAL TOWN HALL
