Today we thank our Rural Women in Western Australia and all around the world. This is the International Day of Rural Women started by the United Nations which recognizes “the critical role and contribution of rural women, including indigenous women, in enhancing agricultural and rural development, improving food security and eradicating rural poverty”. The Country Women’s Association of Western Australia is a support network for country women (and city women) and we are glad there is a day to celebrate the amazing contribution of women in agriculture and rural development. CWA of WA is a voice for all women.
