Description:
Colour Digital Photograph
Statement Of Significance:
The sharing of music, poetry and dance is an important feature of the Victorian Women on Farms Gatherings. Bringing women together for a shared purpose, such activities have helped to break down personal barriers and have offered opportunities for women to express feelings, share experiences, receive validation from others and recharge their batteries. Some poems and songs have been especially written for the occasion and some have been adapted from traditional verse. All of them have honoured the coming together of women as farmers, wives, mothers, teachers, volunteers, supporters and enablers - working alone, with each other, and alongside men.
