Celebrating rural women around the world - AgWomen Global

Rural Exchange 24/02/2018

AgWoman Global is a year-long project that aims to profile 365 women who’ve made an impact in the primary industries.

The project, which features women from New Zealand and overseas, has collected over 100 names so far.

Chelsea Miller, owner of Grass Roots Media, joined Rural Exchange to discuss how the project started.

When a seminar highlighted that women in agriculture don’t get much recognition for their work, Ms Miller took action herself.

“It’s all about storytelling,” she said of the project.

Ms Miller’s goal is to provide recognition for those women around the world who are doing great work, but have gone unnoticed.

Know someone you’d like to be featured? Nominate a woman to be a part of the project at the AgWoman Global website.
