Women on Farms Project (WFP) is a South African feminist organisation operating in the Northern and Western Cape that works with women who live and work on commercial farms. WFP seeks to empower farm women primarily through rights-based capacity building as well as support for their organisation in community-based structures. WFP enables farm women to know and claim their rights. Recent campaigns have targeted Gender Based Violence (GBV), access to proper sanitation facilities on the farms, as well as feminist-centred land redistribution.


The vision of WFP is an engendered society that treats women who live and work on farms with dignity and respect in accordance with the constitutional rights guaranteed to all South African citizens.

We envisage equality, respect and dignity are afforded to all women within the economic, social and political institutions, as well as in the community and home.


Woman on Farms Project strives to strengthen the capacity of women who live and work on farms to claim their rights and fulfil their needs. We do this through socio-economic rights-based and gender education, advocacy and lobbying, casework and support for the building of local structures of farmwomen. We promote self-reliance, accountability and sustainability of organisations so that women organise themselves, speak for themselves and mobilise resources to support their needs and dreams. We believe that self-organisation counteracts the marginalisation, abuse and vulnerability experienced by women in the workplace, home and farming community and ensures their leading role in accessing services and securing employment, land and housing.
