Australian Women and Leadership

Australian Women and Leadership


Through an alliance of academic researchers and six partner organisations the project promotes new understandings of the nature and extent of non-Indigenous and Indigenous women’s leadership across a century of Australian democracy. The project will result in an online encyclopedia produced in collaboration with the eScholarship Research Centre, and related initiatives including digitally recorded interviews. The project will enable key national cultural institutions to present a more gender-balanced account of women’s achievements. The outcome will be acknowledgement of women’s significant leadership in social and political movements despite barriers to equity and full acceptance.
