Excellent article by our ambassador @Rubenstein_Kim1 illustrating the challenge for Honour a Woman too in achieving gender equality in the Order of Australia. How to achieve cultural and structural change. Equality must be mandated. @BPWAust @CEWAus @WLIAus @WomenAus
Shift in numbers, shift in culture http://inside.org.au/shift-in-numbers-shift-in-culture Would an all-male leadership team, or even a team with just a sprinkling of women, have shone light on the inappropriate behaviour of one of its own?

Please read this & consider nominating "troublemaking" (i.e. trailblazing) women to recognise their activism and, as importantly, the issues they advocate for.

@CarolKiernan6 @honourawoman @HonMichaelKirby @michaelkoziol It's the system that needs to change, not individuals. Blaming people for not nominating worthy Australians fails to recognise the underlying structural biases in the #AustralianHonours
After 45 years, it fails to equally recognise women and people from diverse backgrounds.
‘making it (the Order of Australia) better is really up to all of us’. Honour a Woman has been working hard to do so for 3 years now but there are structural impediments which mean that men’s and women’s achievements are not recognised equally. Your support? @HonMichaelKirby
'‘My experience has been that most worthy people I nominate eventually get recognised’ Michael Kirby AC seemingly oblivious of his white male privilege. Tiring to keep illustrating gender/other disparities @honourawoman https://amp.theage.com.au/national/it-is-a-secret-society-does-our-honours-system-need-a-shake-up-20200626-p556f5.html @HonMichaelKirby @michaelkoziol
Celebrating leading abstract artist, inspiring role model Yvonne Audette AM whose honour has been a long time coming. More nominations for women in arts for an Order of Australia needed! #RecognitionMatters @han_francisco @NGVMelbourne @PortraitAu @NatGalleryAus @AusCouncilArts
“Regional Australia would be Siberia without the ABC”
Tim Fischer was on to talk about his love for his family and his pet subject, steam trains.
But he also had a message to critics of the ABC.
The Order of Australia risks extinction if it doesn’t work harder to address the structural barriers holding back everyone who isn’t white, male and middle class from receiving an award. Thanks to @honourawoman for fighting the good fight. https://twitter.com/honourawoman/status/1275685523575787520
Honour a Woman wants ‘to see women’s achievements viewed through a wider prism, with more difficult women honoured in Australia’. #RecognitionMatters @hartnellyoung @hula_grl @WGEAgency @WomensAgenda @JennaPrice https://womensagenda.com.au/latest/honours-women-difficult-women-not-wanted/
