This year we celebrate 100 years since the passage of the Women's Legal Status Act (1918) NSW which gave women in New South Wales the right to be elected to the NSW Legislative Assembly and enter the legal profession.
The exhibition traces the lives of pioneering suffragettes that lobbied key members of the government, the first women admitted to practice law and our very own first female MP Millicent Preston-Stanley.
Visit the exhibition now to learn about the history of women in our Parliament.
The Parliament of New South Wales acknowledges and respects the traditional lands of all Aboriginal people, and pays respects to all Elders past and present. We acknowledge the Gadigal people as the traditional custodians of the land on which the Parliament of New South Wales stands.
