Summary

The Women's Pages: Australian Women and Journalism since 1850 uses secondary sources and primary research to highlight the achievements of Australian women journalists and their contributions to the nation's public life and culture. Women from around the nation, across time and all forms of media, have been included. A list of women Walkley Award winners is included to demonstrate the range and quality of women's journalism that has been produced since the inaugural awards in 1956, a time that roughly coincides with the emergence of the second wave feminist movement.

Short historical notes, entered into a searchable database, have been prepared for over 100 women. Some contain links to further bibliographical and archival resources. Longer essays based on original research have been prepared about a selection of women.

The following data is available: essays and biographical notes about women journalists; alphabetical list of journalists sorted by media type and era in which they were active; alphabetical lists of Walkley Award Winners; alphabetical lists of archival and published resources; selected images.

Dr Nicola Henningham was principal researcher for The Women's Pages. Other researchers included Joanne Evans, Barbara Lemon, Helen Morgan and Ailie Smith.

The project was funded by the Copyright Agency Limited Cultural Fund.
