The Issue

Health services and access. Male farmers play a dominant role in mass media's depiction of rural and regional Australia - and only get published when in drought. However there are female farmers as well, and their plight is just as important. They have just as much, and even more in some cases, mental health burdens than their male counterparts, but they don't go to the GP, they don't have access to specialists such as gynaecologists and psychiatrists.

The Response

I'm travelling around Victoria and rural NSW to speak with six women about their lives as farmers, the short-stick they get handed for health services and how that impacts their wellbeing.
