Introduction

The National Rural Women’s Coalition (NRWC) is a collaborative national voice for women living in rural, regional and remote (RRR) Australia.  The NRWC seeks to ensure better social and economic outcomes for women in RRR Australia and works as a conduit between rural women and the Government on key policies affecting women.

In 2018 the  United Nations, Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) for the 62nd session's priority theme is "Challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality & the empowerment of rural women and girls".  The NRWC is updating it's 2013  ‘What do Rural Women Want?’ survey to better reflect issues  and challenges facing women throughout Australia to ensure  your voices are heard in Australia and internationally. 

This short survey will take between 15-20 minutes of your time to complete, and asks questions on a range of topics.  All questions are optional and no personally identifying information will be collected or asked of you.  All responses will remain confidential and will be collated to help inform Government policy that affects rural, remote and regional women. 

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.  Your voice matters

The NRWC recognise Aboriginal people as First Nation traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to elders both past and present.
