Nine Australian female leaders you should know about

BY STEPHEN GROENEWEGEN

Tuesday 8 March is International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The NFSA joined with nine other organisations to promote a new understanding of Australian women’s leadership in the 20th century. The result was Australia’s first online Encyclopedia of women leaders.

As part of the project we highlighted the cultural achievements of nine outstanding women in film, radio and television. Nine women who – between them – have made their mark as actors, directors, producers, writers, announcers, editors, executives, teachers, activists, critics, designers and entrepreneurs.
