Toby Vue, The Informer: Female leaders highlighted at Museum of Australian Democracy’s Australian Women Changemakers exhibition, The Canberra Times, 19 June 2022

From advancing gender equity to righting injustices, generations of female changemakers who have had profound effects across the nation’s cultural, social, and political landscapes will be highlighted in a Museum of Australian Democracy exhibition.

In a detailed article, award-winning journalist and gender equity advocate Virginia Haussegger has profiled some of those leaders.

For these changemakers, from all walks of life, it seems to be in their DNA, Haussegger writes.

“The intersecting challenges and injustices these women have navigated to forge new chapters in Australia’s history takes us beyond political and policy changemaking. It’s soul shifting.”

The Australian Women Changemakers exhibition, which Haussegger is guest curator, opens on Tuesday.
