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 Chikarovski 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.
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.
