Rural women in the regions 
-shared similiraties- 
Gordana Čomić
Being a rural woman 
• Less employed 
• Less represented 
• Less in the role of local or regional decision 
maker 
• Less payed 
• Less property in her ownership 
• Less freedom and chances for change 
• Less perspective for development
Shared obstacles 
• Harder and less access to banks and loans 
• Tougher tradicional family models 
• More non-payed work 
• Shared struggle against domestic violence 
• Less opportunity for higher education 
• Less substance of social life 
• More commute
What can I do? 
• Adress local and regional authorities 
• Adress local community 
• Adress cross-border cooperation 
• Share experiences 
• Demand visibility 
• Invest in future of children for better life in the 
same local or regional community
How can I do it? 
• Networking 
• Joining women groups 
• Addressing parliamentarian (local, regional, 
national) 
• Connecting with business women associations 
• Activism as such
Strategies, tactics? 
• Changing the role of rural women is a long ride 
• Changes started quite recently on EU level 
• Strategies must be clear and fundamentally with 
the definition of rural women as unused potential 
for development 
• “I am not an object, but an actor, a player of 
development” 
• I can change everything that is changeable and do 
anything that is doable
Has anyone done it? 
• Yes, a lot of women in our regions 
• Timeline for last 20-25 years shows that 
changes started 
• Rural women made people listen to them: 
politicians, bankers, academics, civil sector, 
media, men & women who do not live in rural 
areas, legislators, lawyers, artists … 
• Where rural women are seen and supported 
the development is measurable
Who are my allies ? 
• Anyone who can hear and understand very 
simple sentence: 
“From the beginning of time I was a rule taker 
in my local community, now I want to be a rule 
maker as well, because that is good for 
everybody and because that is the source for 
common development in the future” 
Signed: Rural woman
Thank you!
