Tractors, Women, Protests

Summary/Abstract: The article analyses the political, linguistic and demographic invisibility of rural women in contemporary Croatian society, especially in the context of the tumultuous peasant protests in 2010, which are presented and articulated exclusively by man and from their perspective (negotiators, protesters, spokespersons). Since the specificity of women’s work in the discursive formation of “agricultural crisis” is entirely invisible to the media on the one hand, while on the other we are witnessing the promotion of The World Rural Women’s Day and selection of The most prominent Croatian rural women, or searching for women for reality show The Farmer Wants a Wife, the question is whether there are any rural women in Croatian villages at all?
