Podcast | Has the #MeToo movement permeated our food chain?

What will it take for agriculture to have its own #MeToo moment, asks Emily Thomas of The Food Chain podcast on the BBC

Emily Thomas explores the hidden problem of sexual harassment and abuse in our fisheries and fields, and hears how agriculture is all too often a dangerous occupation for the women who labour in its unseen corners.

We hear from women who have seen this first hand, from the vineyards of South Africa, to shrimp farms in Bangladesh, to tomato pickers in Mexico. What will it take for agriculture to have its own #MeToo moment?
