I had not heard of Betty Wilson before - but I just read she was the first person, male or female, to take 10 wickets in a test match. Definitely deserves a bronze statue! #bettyinbronze https://t.co/1QiQtsdJn4
Thanks to Iola Mathews for an insightful obit celebrating the life and feminist leadership of Beatrice Faust AO who led the way in so many firsts for gender equality in Australia. Courageous, inspired a generation #honourthiswoman https://t.co/s80CdyfxEk
@GIWLkings Fabulous! Here at @honourawoman we strive to correct the gender imbalance in the #AustralianHonours where for decades the vast majority of Honours have gone to professional, old, white men. #RecognitionMatters whether it's medals or statues.
Excellent resource guide by @WikiWomenInRed Would be fantastic if more women with Orders of Australia could have wiki pages too! #honourawoman #RecognitionMatters #rolemodels @WomenVictoria @hula_grl @hartnellyoung @GIWLkings @genderequityvic @WomenEconAU @AusWomenLawyers
So you want to write a biographical article about a woman on #wikipedia, but can't make sense of all the "rules", "guidelines" and "policies"? In a nutshell, here's how to do it.
Our guide, "in a nutshell" is here
Great work to #HonouraWoman by the Victorian Government. When someone nominates a woman for the Vic Honour Roll they can also tick the box for this application to be then considered for an Australian Honour.

I loved that article of yours Kristine and know what you mean. It was wonderful when I met her, such an inspiration for me and our movement!
@CarolKiernan6 @honourawoman So delighted by this Carol. I recently took a little trip down memory lane with Rosie, reflecting on her landmark speech to the National Press Club four years ago -- the most profound and memorable day of my working life. @womensagenda https://t.co/k0uT6fDlcA
Rosie Batty AO was one of the women who inspired me to co-found @honourawoman as she had no Order of Australia at that time even though her work had profoundly impacted all Australians. So pleased that she is now one of our ambassadors! #rolemodel #RosieBatty https://t.co/ee3U5nxeEH
