In March 2011, Banana Link in the UK and Peuples Solidaires in France hosted a tour by Ligia Lamich, Women's Officer of Costa Rican trade union SITAGAH. Highlights from her visit are captured on this short film.

Ligia participated in a range of events in the UK to raise awareness about challenges facing women employed in the tropical fruit industries of Latin America and then travelled to France to celebrate International Women's Day and continue raising awareness. As well as speaking about conditions along banana and pineapple supply chains she was able to share good practices for organising and educating women workers on issues of gender discrimination and inequality.
