Australian In My Difference: Women and Migration in Australia Since 1945

Summary

Australian in My Difference is an online exhibition that celebrates Australian women by focusing on the ways that women from diverse cultures, particularly, but not exclusively, those who came in the latter part of the twentieth century, have contributed to Australian society through their roles in the home, family, community leadership and public life. It not only aims to highlight the achievements of some remarkable women, but to add to the growing scholarly and public discussion about migration as a 'gendered process'; one that is now undergone by more women than men, not only in Australia, but on a global scale.

The project is a joint initiative of the Australian Women's Archives Project, the Department of Immigration, Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs and the University of Melbourne.
