The Trailblazing Women and the Law Project is creating, showcasing and analysing the experiences of seven decades of Australia’s pioneer, ‘trailblazing’, women lawyers. Using an interdisciplinary team with expertise in the fields of gender, oral history, biography, law, citizenship, social networks, cultural informatics, digital publishing and women’s history archiving, the Project will ensure trailblazing women in law are recognized and their stories made available to inspire others. The Project Partners are ANU, Australian Women Lawyers, The University of Melbourne’s eScholarship Research Centre, Family Court of Australia, Federal Court of Australia, National Foundation for Australian Women and the National Library of Australia.
The Women Lawyers’ Association of South Australia has made the Trailblazing Project their nominated charity for the 2015–16 financial year. WLASA has made a donation and is encouraging its members to donate. Girlie devotees can also be part of this inspirational work by making a donation to Trailblazing Women and the Law.
