Because the introduction of irrigation over a century ago, primary industry flourished, resulting in a multitude of orchards market gardens. After World War II, migrants flocked to the area in search of work on the farms, and in cases, establishing a property of their own.

Unfortunately, the region has taken a turn for the worse over the past decade. The irrigation water that was plentiful has now been rationed, and many farmers have been forced the land. The main source of water is from the Goulburn River, with several reservoirs located along its stretch to the mighty Murray River. Dam capacities have fallen to dangerous levels, resulting in some farmers having inadequate supply of irrigation water.

These historians    history textbooks to be revised
so that they show accurately the role    by women.

 

  the history books, cavemen  most of the food for their

families through hunting animals. But the  shows that 80% of the diet of

prehistoric humans was vegetarian and it was collected by females.  ,

women’s efforts in fighting in wars or leading revolutions have been ignored. Textbooks 

concentrate on men such as Hannibal or Che Guevara and neglect 

women such as Théroigne de Méricourt, an opera singer who led the storming of the

Bastille in 1789, or Mariya Bochkareva, a Bolshevik who organised a well-trained and

  successful troop of 2,000 fighting women during the Russian revolution in 

1917.  Women rulers are also forgotten. Between 962 and 1582 there were at least 16

women rulers in countries  from Italy to Angola.

Women  up half the human . If there is no    to their

contribution to history in the textbooks, then the real story is not being told. However

many male historians  that important female figures have been kept
