Her Place: Remarkable Women honours the lives and contributions of women throughout Victoria. The third in a series of exhibitions presented by Her Place Women’s Museum Australia, it celebrates the work, achievements and historical significance of women through video interviews, photographs, biographical accounts and personal artefacts.

The exhibition tells the stories of ten women from across Victoria including the south west. These women have contributed to Australian society at both national and local levels through their work as artists and activists, farmers and businesswomen, scientists and community leaders. The group includes a former state premier and the AFL’s first female coach.

Seven of the women featured in the exhibition have been inducted onto the Victorian Honour Roll of Women. Established in 2001, the Honour Roll pays tribute to women who have been pioneers in their field and who have improved the lives of women and the broader Victorian community. Each year, at the time of International Women’s Day, a new group of remarkable Victorian women is inducted onto the roll, thereby creating a significant record and increased awareness of the achievements and contributions of women in this state.  This exhibition coincides with the call for nominations to the Victorian Honour Roll of Women for 2018.  www.vic.gov.au/honourrollofwomen

The exhibition will be accompanied by a program of public discussions and workshops that explore current and topical issues affecting women of all ages today.

Her Place Museum also has an engaging and wide reaching education program, including resources, available to both primary and secondary students and teachers. All lessons have been linked to the Victorian Curriculum to enable teachers to put them to their most effective use.  

Her Place Museum is also offering teachers and students a free guided tour and teachers a free professional development workshop.

We have developed a Communications Toolkit (334 KB) as a resource for media, individuals and groups who would like raise awareness of the the exhibiton Her Place: Remarkable Women and Her Place Women’s Museum Australia.

 

 

 

 

Her Place Women's Museum curates exhibitions that tell the stories of Australian women. These exhibitions celebrate the work, lives, achievements and historical significance of living and deceased women.

Many of the women featured in the exhibitions have been past recipients of the Victorian Honour Roll of Women. Established in 2001, the Honour Roll pays tribute to women who have been pioneers in their field and who have improved the lives of women and the broader Victorian community. Each year, at the time of International Women’s Day, a new group of remarkable Victorian women is inducted onto the roll, thereby creating a significant record and increased awareness of the achievements and contributions of women in this state.
