dc.description.abstractAgriculture challenges health and safety professionals as it continues to be one of the most dangerous occupations despite the considerable attention that has been paid to it. Researchers have struggled to obtain the information necessary to challenge the cultural, economic and family dynamics that seem resistant to change. To add to this difficulty, attention has not been paid to the concerns of the farm women who work off the farm while taking care of children and supporting their husbands. This research process has resulted in viewing the women as women, not as wives. This qualitative research proposal used feminist methodology to study the perspectives of farm women through the focus group process. Data was collected and an analysis performed using the transcripts. Ultimately, meaning emerged from the collective lived experience of these farm women. The farming community hopefully will benefit from this research through the creation of better safety interventions targeted to the farm wife in the future.en_US
