(TAP) - The Tunisian Association of Democratic Women (ATFD) staged, on the celebration of International Workers’ Day Wednesday, a protest in front of the premises of the Ministry of Women, Family, Children and Elderly Affairs to call for the improvement of living and working conditions of women in rural and inland areas.

The ATFD also denounced the deplorable working conditions of female farmhands and their insecure transport, citing last Saturday’s accident in Sidi Bouzid that left 12 farm workers dead, including 7 women.

President of the association Yosra Frawes told TAP the real problem in Tunisia lies in the adoption of a development model sacrificing women and neglecting the agricultural sector.
