Women and Rural Communities

Women produce at least 49% of real farm income in Australia.  Women make this vital contribution to primary industries through a variety of means, including managing farms, business management, farm tourism, and off-farm work to maintain farming enterprises.  DPIPWE provides a Women and Rural Communities Program to ensure that rural women are connected and supported in their valuable work and their contribution to primary industries.

Women in Rural & Regional Industries - this database provides opportunities for individuals, industry and business to network with rural women around Tasmania.
