About the National Rural Women's Coalition

The National Rural Women’s Coalition (NRWC) is a collaborative national voice for women living in rural, regional and remote Australia. Established in 2002, they seek to ensure better social and economic outcomes for women in rural townships and on farms.

The objectives of the NRWC are to:

  • Represent the diverse views of women in rural, regional and remote Australia;
  • Provide advice to the Australian Government on policy issues relevant to the views and circumstances of rural women;
  • Contribute to building a positive profile of rural women, their achievements and issues.

Issues of special interest to the NRWC are health, drought policy, family violence, transport and cross-cultural awareness between Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and their communities.
