The results of the correlation analysis disclosed that instructional channels (local, national, and international) were considerably (P < .01) correlate with rural women's participation in promoting social unit food security. Also, supported the results of means that comparison, women's participation in food security improvement is considerably connected with the variables of taking part in extension courses, obtaining nutrition info, production systems, family size, distance between residency location and therefore the town, instructional level, and job of the one that is in responsibility of food provision. Additionally, the results of the structural equation modeling showed that education channels had a positive and vital result on the participation in rising social unit food security [1-5].

Although it's not possible to accomplish property development all told fields (including family, social and economic) while not the participation of ladies, recent studies have indicated that many social and cultural factors, similarly as varied expectations from girls, has seriously strangled their participation, particularly once it involves rural girls. Sadly, the importance of women's role in several rural development programs has been forgotten, such a lot of rural development programs and comes have failing round the world. To use women's abilities and skills, it's necessary to own a decent understanding of their activities [6, 7].

Since half the population in developing countries sleep in rural area unites and half the agricultural population are girls, a way to activate this human resource is to review their participation in numerous areas. Recent studies on rural girls’ participation have indicated that rural women have loads of expertise in food production. As such, their role in agriculture is crucial. Though this can be AN indisputable fact that rural girls offer, on average, four-hundredth of the labor for agricultural activities, their leading role in rural development has been unnoted [8].

Since democratic approaches began to be thought-about in development in Persia within the early 2010s, the importance of participation as a method and additionally a goal of property development have been emphasized. property development wants the participation of ladies as half the population as a result of it'll be not possible to accomplish property development while not the active participation of ladies all told areas together with family, society, and economy.


To achieve property development at the worldwide level, attention ought to be paid to challenges associated with the food offer. The primary challenge is hunger growth. Per the most recent report of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), over 969 million individuals go on with nearly but one USD/day and fractional of them area unit obsessed on agriculture. In fact, it looks not possible to settle this challenge given the severe impoverishment of those individuals. The second challenge is that the lack of balance within the daily diet, and environmental degradation is that the third challenge. Food insecurity may be a nice barrier facing welfare and development and it will build human future unsure and imprecise [9, 10].

Various studies have shown that ladies participate in production, processing, and consumption of food in many various forms and that they area unit progressively partaking in production. Despite these activities, women's ability to realize food security is underestimated round the world, and their capability to boost food security isn't used. Women's services to agricultural production and social unit food security area unit totally different round the world. In areas wherever men migrate to urban areas due to drought, women's participation in agriculture is outstanding. In several countries, they additionally do onerous and repetitive tasks over the year. Within the world, girls area unit considered a necessary producing unit, and therefore the economic structure of the family depends on them. In most developing countries they turn out sixty to eightieth of the food productions. Thus, one will claim that they accounted for half the food production of the globe. Thus, rural girls play a key role, particularly in crises and in making certain the health and food security [11, 12].

The role of women's participation within the promotion of food security has been established. In different words, if girl’s area unit supplied with opportunities and resources in agriculture or non-agriculture activities, they'll prove their potency. Some studies report that thirty second of Iranian families resides in food insecurity. Thus, attention has been drawn in recent years towards the policy of direct grant payment to support shoppers and adjunct agricultural policies, e.g. bonded purchase and adjunct valuation, so as to boost the food security of households. Additionally, since the agricultural sector plays a key role in meeting the food demands of Iranian households, the producers of this sector area unit supplied with tax exemptions in a trial to support food security. Increasing access to healthy beverage (96.8% of the Iranian households), reducing the infant death rate throughout birth, and increasing the acquirement level of Persiaian men and ladies (about 99%) area unit some policies in Iran to boost and increase food security. Developing the infrastructure to speak info on health and nutrition to Persiaian families and increasing awareness on the reduction of salt and tobacco consumption area unit 2 different policies in Iran to boost the health and food security of Finally, given the political conditions and therefore the US's sanctions, attention has been drawn to the management of food costs against the volatility of rate of exchange and worth transmission so as to support the living of families and improve their food security in recent years [13].

Experts believe that the revision of coming up with approaches ought to embrace attention to girls get additional attention. Meanwhile, info and communication channels area unit drawing interests as a development of our time consequently, info and communication channels area unit a tool which will empower rural girls and build them participate in numerous activities expeditiously. Info and communication technology (ICT) build loads of capabilities and facilities in developing countries so as to form a giant transition in rural development. The primary step of this transition is providing opportunities for rural communities to bridge the digital gap and reach info resources. The helpful impacts of the knowledge technology revolution aren't restricted solely to voters and specific individuals; however it additionally includes a wide impact on the native, national and international economy during this regard, it is declared that the event of data and communication resources will open new doors for villages to utilize unlimited facilities, and it may also amendment rural communication unprecedentedly Access to info and communication resources so as to retain jobs is changing into a necessary issue in rural communities. Info and communication channels have created many new opportunities for authorization in economic and social dimensions. Therefore, it is aforesaid that info and communication channels area unit helpful tools for empowering the poor population of society, particularly girls. Info and communication channels will facilitate rural girls to beat several barriers, difficulties, and discriminations in their life [14].

They will additionally facilitate them reach justice, equality, welfare, participation, and quality growth in their life [15, 16]. The world organization regards info and communication channels as a robust tool for girl’s authorization. several studies have indicated that info and communication channels have a significant impact on women's participation within the promotion of food security studied the role of data and communication channels in food security in Divandarreh town, Persia and terminated that these channels had a major impact on social unit food security promotion. During a study on food security and female-headed households, Nagamani & Veni found that education, ICT, range of youngsters, and property possession were the factors that influenced their food security studied the connection between the extent of the employment of ICT and women's authorization.


The results illustrated that ladies WHO used these technologies to a bigger extent had additional capabilities studied the role of ICT in empowering rural girls and terminated that there was a major positive relationship between ICT use and women's authorization in Africa terminated that rural girls WHO had additional participation in rural organizations and production activities enjoyed additional food security. During a study on the consequences of instructional programs and nutrition awareness on food security, disclosed that these programs had a robust impact on women's participation in promoting food security. During an analysis add China, terminated that women's education and therefore the use of instructional multimedia system were the vital factors that created the ladies participate in food security improvement. During a study on the agricultural areas of African country, Clement. Understood that one among the foremost vital factors that influenced food security was land reforms. During this regard, rural households that had cultivatable lands at the micro-level had additional food security and property. Given the importance of food security and its role in development, it's essential to review the role of individuals WHO have high participation. It’s additionally necessary to review rural women's role as house managers WHO have loads to try and do. This analysis aimed to review the role of instructional channels in women's participation in enhancing food security to realize this vital goal, the subsequent objectives ought to be pursued.
