- Women's Liberationist
Beryl Henderson set up the Abortion Law Reform Association in Canberra. She was an active member of Canberra Women's Liberation, and translated the French book Abortion: the Bobigny affair: law on trial. The first women's refuge in Canberra was named after her and in 1987 the Beryl Henderson foundation was established.
Born in England, she arrived in Australia via Israel, to settle in Victoria in 1965. She eventually made Canberra her home until the end of the 1970s when she returned to Israel.
