Significant Women

NFAW established The Australian Women's Archives Project [http://www.nfaw.org/women-s-history/] 'a strategy to identify and support preservation of women’s records and make them accessible to researchers'

It hosts a very useful database of Australian women (past and present) and women's organisations. The biographies are fairly brief, but links to additional information are provided where possible, and the site is a good starting point when searching for the more obscure figures in Australian women's history. Find the browse page here.

Australian Women’s Register
The searchable-on-line Australian Women’s Register is a valuable and growing source of biographical data about Australian women and their organisations, with hyper-links to the archival repositories and libraries where their records are held and to other sources of information. Women and women’s organisations are listed alphabetically. You’ll also be able to search by functional classification, for example, ‘P’ covers physicists, politicians, pharmacists, pacifists and many more.
