Rural Women's Network

The Rural Women's Network (RWN) is a state-wide government program within the Department of Primary Industries.

From meeting at the crossroads with drought-stricken women in 1992, the NSW Rural Women’s Network continues to reflect and improve how we listen to rural women, link them to information and services and create opportunities that build personal and business resilience and strengthen rural communities.

In 2022, we celebrate 30 years of Rural Women's Network and for our 25th birthday we created 25 Fast Facts over 25 years of the Rural Women's Network (PDF, 191.01 KB)
