100 Women

Bringing together stories from Australia and around the world, the 100 Women book and photographic exhibition celebrates the achievements and challenges of one hundred remarkable women. Profiled women include artist Margaret Olley, actress Susie Porter and country singer Catherine Britt, as well as women who inspire through their daily achievements.

In their stories, women reflect on the changes they have seen in their own lifetimes, and tell of their hopes for the future. From eminent scientists and award-winning poets to single mothers and refugees from war-torn regions, the women in this collection inspire by sharing their personal stories.

With stunning black-and-white photography accompanying each story, 100 Women provides a compelling insight into the lives of contemporary women.
