What is the RWN?

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 regional, rural and remote women, link them to information and services and create opportunities that build personal and business resilience and strengthen regional, rural and remote communities.
