Rural Women's Network
The Rural Women's Network (RWN) is a state-wide government program within the Department of Primary Industries (part of Trade & Investment, Regional Infrastructure and Services).
The RWN works in innovative ways to share information and promote action on rural women's issues, often in partnership with individuals, groups and non-government and government agencies. More about us.
There are several ways you can stay in touch and find out the latest news. See our Updates section for details.
Registrations are open for the annual NSW Rural Women's Gathering being held at Coolamon from 12-14 September. They have a fantastic weekend planned - we hope to see you there.
This free 8-page booklet includes information on some of the services and resources available as well as what to do if you're a victim and how to help a friend.
Our 60th issue of The Country Web showcases young women actively involved in their industry and community who are helping to build vibrant and sustainable rural communities.
If you have a commitment and desire to make a real difference to your industry and community and want to develop your skills apply now for the 2014 RIRDC Rural Women's Award.
