National Farm Safety and Health Week: Safety & Health for Women in Agriculture
Women are taking on more and more responsibility on and off the farm. In a given day, a woman may work on the farm, work at an off-farm job, do laundry, clean house, care for the children and put dinner on the table. It is almost impossible to balance life and work when they take place on the same land. The collective burden of these responsibilities and lack of time off can really weigh on a person and create tremendous strain. To maintain your physical and mental well-being, talk about your concerns, get adequate rest and know your limits. Even superheroes need sidekicks!
