Pamphlet issued as an invitation to the second Women on Farms Gathering held in Sea Lake in 1991. Visitors to this Gathering, coming from all over Victoria, marvelled at the strength and determination women from this region showed in the face of ongoing drought and the rural downturn.

The commitment to continue meeting annually was made here.
