Celebrating Women’s Leadership

Date: 10 June 2010

On June 2, 2010 at the National Library of Australian in Canberra, a stellar cast of women met to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Australian Women’s Archives Project. Assembled guests were treated to some excellent presentations from Her Excellency, Ms Quentin Bryce, AC, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Baroness Valerie Amos, High Commissioner for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Senator the Hon Penny Wong, Minister for Climate Change, Energy Efficiency and Water and Ms Jane Halton, Secretary, Department of Health and Ageing.

The Governor-General, Her Excellency, Ms Quentin Bryce, has an appreciation of the value of historical research that is well captured in her speech, which you can link to from here.
