About the Event

About

Changemakers celebrates the activists, icons and allies behind 120 years of women’s rights in Australia. Australian women were the first in the world to achieve both the right to vote and to stand for election. Yet they still faced inequality at home, in the workplace and in society. This exhibition explores the remarkable stories of activists and trailblazers from many walks of life, from Edna Ryan’s campaign for equal pay in 1974 to Nyadol Nyuon’s advocacy for refugee women today. Discover the many ways changemakers transform policy, opinion, standards and rights; see the first pamphlets organising women to protest, the hand-embroidered banners of craftivist Tal Fitzpatrick, Julie Bishop’s red shoes and more. In the Hidden Stories audio experience listen to six voices working to make change. Hear music and stories about art, representation, and shaping the future. This audio experience can be enjoyed at home or in the exhibition. Visit the website for more information.
