The Australian Women's Register

The Encyclopedia of Women and Leadership in Twentieth-Century Australia is published by the Australian Women's Archives Project (AWAP) and twinned with AWAP's flagship web resource, The Australian Women's Register.

The Australian Women's Register is a valuable and growing source of biographical and bibliographical data about Australian women and their organisations, with links to the archival repositories and libraries where their records are held and to other sources of information.

Many women leaders included in the Encyclopedia already had entries in the Register, and for those who did not a stub entry was created in the Register at the time of publication of the Encyclopedia in 2014. Each woman leader's entry in the Encyclopedia has a link in the sidebar to the relevant entry in the Register.

Where the Encyclopedia is a point-in-time publication – a research outcome from Australian Research Council Linkage Project LP100200304 (2011-2013) – The Australian Women's Register is an ongoing initiative, supported by The National Foundation for Australian Women in conjunction with The University of Melbourne.

You may find further information about women leaders and their activities post the publication of the Encyclopedia in the Register, where work continues as funding permits.
