Life as a rural woman takes on many different roles. Whether you’re a farmer, a fisherman’s wife, a station hand, a shearer’s cook, a mother, a governess, a community nurse, a stock agent – or all of the above – you all have the following in common:
- You are capable.
- You are an expert, in your business, your male counterparts and the rural way of life.
- You are connected to community.
- You are risk averse and you know about the dangers in the workplace, and more importantly;
- …you care.
The simple fact is this: it doesn’t matter what role(s) you fill, how long you’ve been a ‘rural woman’, or how much you know about work health and safety. You are perfectly positioned to #PlantASeedForSafety, and I want to hear from you.
