Summary

Unbroken Spirit: Women in Broken Hill documents the historical experience of women living in Broken Hill, New South Wales since the city was established. Secondary sources and primary research (using archival materials, including images, and oral interviews) have been used to create an online, searchable database containing biographical notes on over sixty Broken Hill women - past and present - along with information about relevant publications and archival resources, and a rich collection of digital images from the Outback Archives in Broken Hill. Soundbites of interviews with a number of women may be heard online through the exhibition.

Dr Barbara Lemon was the principal researcher and writer for Unbroken Spirit

Funding for this project was provided by the New South Wales Government Office for Women, the Australian Research Council, Monash University and the National Foundation for Australian Women. The Broken Hill City Council provided in-kind support.
