Senator TROETH —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

That the Senate notes:

(a)   that 15 October 1996 is World Rural Women's Day;

(b)   the important and dynamic role played by rural women in Australia and overseas as they pursue multifaceted careers in farm businesses, small businesses in country towns and provincial cities, in their homes and, for a very few, as members of statutory boards and as contributors to government policy; and

(c)   the need to ensure that all spheres of government and agricultural organisations consider rural women's perspectives and seek their active participation in decision making.
