Country Women's Association of Western Australia

October 15 is International Day of Rural Women and October 16 is World Food Day. Around the world, women represent around 43% of the agricultural workforce, which highlights their position and importance as relating to food security and community resources. Stand with the CWA of WA and the Associated Country Women of the World to give women equality of access to land, inheritance rights, and agricultural processes.
