A Fit Place for Women - NSW Parliament

Learn about the role, history and achievements of women in state politics through a new exhibition on now at Parliament House. ‘A Fit Place for Women: NSW Parliament’ presents a display of artefacts, artworks, photographs, rare documents, newsreels and more, giving an unparalleled insight into women in politics. There are the stories of the NSW Womanhood Suffrage League and the campaign for the vote; the stories of historic and contemporary trailblazers such as Millicent Preston Stanley, Catherine Green, Janice Crosio, Kerry Chikarovksi and Kristina Kenneally; the stories of legislative review and reform driven by women; and the stories of groups such as the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians Association, working to encourage future women into Australian politics.  


A Fit Place for Women: NSW Parliament is on now at Parliament House until Friday 28 April. Entry is free, and doors are open from 9:00am – 5:00pm Monday to Friday, and from 9:00am-6:00pm on Wednesdays when Parliament is sitting. There will also be a special opening on the Australia Day public holiday, from 10:00am to 3:00pm.
