PRAISE FOR WOMEN WHO DIG:

“A haunting, powerful and important journey, one that crosses the borders of class, race and nation, and one that belongs in the canon of food studies. I’ll be thinking about the testimonies in this book for a very long time to come.”
̶ Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System

“Moyles’s vibrant travel writing—her arrival in India on the eve of the Diwali festival is a highlight—and K. J. Dakin’s color photographs bring these disparate locations to life and ensure that these women farmers’ work will be invisible no longer: “They will feed the world. They will remake history.””
