“The countless achievements and contributions women have made in shaping Victoria and Australia have been left out of the historical narrative. We are committed to ensuring that future generations will recognise the tremendous value women bring to our society.
HER PLACE will honour women, inspire girls and will educate everyone.
The plan is for HER PLACE to be a space to tell the story of Australia’s women: pioneers, indigenous people and migrants, from all walks of life, past and present" - Mary Stuart.
