Brilliant Ideas and Huge Visions: ABC Radio Australian Rural Women of the Year - 1994-1997 celebrates all the women across Australia who were recognised as ABC Radio Rural Women of the Year. Between 1994 and 1997, over 150 women were recognised at a regional, state or national level. The award was an important first step towards getting rural women the public recognition they so thoroughly deserve.

This exhibition is a project of the National Foundation for Australian Women, in collaboration with the University of Melbourne, as part of the Foundation's ongoing initiative, the Australian Women's Archives Project.

Work on this project was generously funded in 2010 by The Fred P Archer Charitable Trust managed by Trust Company Ltd.
