Cultural life in the regions is part of what makes our regional centres vibrant places to live, work, create, share, and participate, as well as providing the basis for insights concerning place, space, and identity that can be divergent from those arising from other locatednesses. The experience of regional Australia is unique. John Woinarski has written that there "are places in Australia that are awe-inspiring, spectacular, mysterious; they touch our spirit and help define our nation"; but these places are complicated, for ideas of the bush or the outback are "sometimes more shifting myth than reality".

Recent reports reveal that the U.S. has the highest rate of maternal deaths in the developed world, particularly among low-income, rural, and African American women (NPR, 2017). Changes to the Supreme Court endanger the viability of Roe v. Wade. In Iowa, a judge threatens to ban nearly all abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected (NPR, 2018). In Wisconsin, the state legislature rejects the repeal of the “cocaine mom law,” which opponents argue forces undue medical care on pregnant women (Reuters, 2017). These reproductive threats are not limited to only women’s rights.
