A YOUNG farmer has spoken out about the efforts she and other female agricultural workers have to make to be taken seriously.
But this doesn't mean they have to make any concessions in how they look in their workplace.

She has a similar look across her platform, proving her point: women farmers work hard and can look hot at the same time.

The final comment agreed with Kirsten in a novel way: “Amen," he said.
