What you said: Results of the 2012 rural women’s ‘snapshot’ issues survey

A short online survey was conducted by open invitation through the Rural Women’s Network’s Rural Email List (REL), to Twitter/Blog subscribers and Country Web readers. The aim was to gather some specific ‘intelligence’ from a random sample.

Respondents were invited to tell us what was the number one issue rural women faced today; suggest something that needed to change; and how things would be better once the change had been made.

The survey was open from 22 July to 14 September and 82 responses were received and we thank all those who took the time to send us their thoughts. 

Some respondents raised more than one issue but we have endeavoured to place responses under one common theme around what was perceived to be the primary issue raised.

51 respondents voluntarily supplied their email address for further follow-up if required.

The two most highlighted issues focused on health and wellbeing (19%) and mining, the environment and the right to farm (19%).
