International Day of Rural Women in
Days to go:
International Day of Rural Women is dedicated to recognising the crucial role that rural women play in enhanced agricultural and rural development, improving food security, and eradicating rural poverty. The day aims to highlight the unique challenges faced by these women, such as limited access to resources and services, and encourages governments and international organisations to take firm actions in supporting rural women. The observance also emphasises the significance of gender equality and women's empowerment as vital factors in fostering sustainable development globally.
This special day was first established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007, in response to a call made by the participants at the Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995. The importance of rural women in Australia cannot be understated, as they play a vital role in maintaining the agricultural sector, which is a significant driver of the Australian economy. Additionally, rural women in Australia contribute to community building and are recognised for their resilience in the face of adversities such as natural disasters and economic downturns.
International Day of Rural Women is observed through various events and activities, including conferences, workshops, and panel discussions focusing on the challenges and opportunities faced by rural women in the country. These events provide a platform for sharing knowledge, experiences, and best practices, as well as encouraging networking and collaboration among rural women and their allies. International Day of Rural Women takes place annually on 15th October, aligning with global celebrations, fostering solidarity and raising awareness of the significant role rural women hold in our society.
