Want to make rural women more visible?

Researchers at Monash University are calling for rural and regional women who are household breadwinners to take part in an academic research project.

The research is part of a project helping to promote the important contribution of mature working women to their rural and regional communities. Titled ‘Breadwinner’, the project involves interviews and photography-led research methods of women in full-time, part-time or self-employment who are aged over 40 and the main or equal economic contributors to their households.

Researcher Kathleen Riach, Associate Professor of Management at Monash Business School says: “Women over 40 are often invisible in discussions about who supports or contributes to the nation’s economy.

Our aim is to showcase their experiences through images and stories in a real and virtual gallery with the hope of challenging perceptions and celebrating the diversity of Australian breadwinners in 2018.”
