Constructing and reconstructing rural women in Australia: the politics of change, diversity and identity



Constructing and reconstructing rural women in Australia: the politics of change, diversity and identity



Sociologia Ruralis 38(3): 351-370



This paper examines the politics of change and the politics of identity evident in the recent history of Australian rural women's organizations, including the blurring of the categories 'farm women' and 'rural women.' Several different ways in which rural women's identities are being constructed in feminist scholarship, in rural women's own (various) discourses and in the mass media are identified. Rural women's diverse activities and identities are seen to cross boundaries.
