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.
