Her Place Women’s Museum Australia celebrates the social, civic and entrepreneurial achievements of all Australian women and their role in shaping our nation. Her Place aspires to create Australia’s first dedicated national women’s museum and archive. It will be a centre for exhibitions, educational resources and public programs, and a hub of activities where the distinctive achievements and contributions of women can be acknowledged and written into history.
This exhibition is a collaboration between Her Place Women’s Museum Australia, Greater Shepparton Women’s Charter Alliance Advisory Committee (GSWCAAC) and La Trobe University.
