Papers will cover a range of topics and highlight the diversity of research on women’s leadership in Australia since 1900. Presentations will reveal new understandings of women’s civic and political leadership, from the neighbourhood to the international level, and uncover the experiences of women who performed significant leadership roles at the community level including consumer, political and environmental movements, as well as in Indigenous, migrant and rural communities.
