Cultural Advice

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website contains names, images, and voices of deceased persons.

In addition, some articles contain terms or views that were acceptable within mainstream Australian culture in the period in which they were written, but may no longer be considered appropriate.

These articles do not necessarily reflect the views of The Australian National University.

Older articles are being reviewed with a view to bringing them into line with contemporary values but the original text will remain available for historical context.

Women Australia is an initiative of the National Centre of Biography at the Australian National University.

It consists of entries on women published in the NCB's websites, Australian Dictionary of Biography, Obituaries Australia and Labour Australia as well as biographical register entries.
