The Invisible Farmer Project
Australia’s national broadcaster the ABC has joined up with the Australian Research Council and Museums Victoria to conduct the largest ever Australian study about women on the land. Called the Invisible Farmers as the work that these women do is mostly behind the scenes and often unseen, but they are the backbone of many farming and rural businesses.
Submissions were called to pay tribute to farming woman all around Australia via the ABC Open website.
And … well… here is one such submission that you may find of interest.

Who needs a Mother's Day card when you get a great tribute like that? Congratulations for all you do as a "documenter." I have loved getting a daily glimpse of your Australian farm and have especially enjoyed comparing it to life on a Kansas farm.ReplyDelete

Women are often (always?) the backbone of all (most?) work.
