Her Place: Remarkable Women
24 May–18 June 2017
COPACC (Colac Otway Performing Arts & Cultural Centre)
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.
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.
Many of the women featured in the exhibition have been inducted onto the Victorian Honour Roll of Women.
