Without getting into the politics of it all, I was reading about Mitt Romney's pledge in Ohio to help female entrepreneurs and innovators in creating small businesses and the jobs that go with them.
This had me reflecting on the aquaponics field and just how prominate women are in designing, building, teaching and running aquaponics systems.
Of the 7000+ members on the Aquaponics Community Gardening Forum, many are women and many are leaders in aquaponics.
One friend of mine likes to bring up that when it comes to food and family, just how much of a force women become in their instinctive protection of their families.
So I can see how politicians could recognize women in business as an important focus for their efforts, but supporting women in business, especially food related businesses like aquaponics, I believe is critical to feeding a nation and the world.
