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.
Share your stories of women who have come before you – your mother, grandmother, great grandmother – women who played a role in building family and communities across NSW and who inspire you.
Know a valued female volunteer in your rural community? Nominate them for the 2013 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll. Closes 16 August.
Planning is well underway for the 2013 Gathering to be held at Scone from 25-27 October. Registrations open 1 August. In the meantime check our their blog for updates.
