International Women's Day 2018

The role of women, in both family and public life, has undergone major change and transformation. In the twenty-first century, women are seizing the opportunity to be versatile, motivated and active citizens who inspire – and lead – change. Deakin women are strong, multi-faceted individuals, who successfully juggle many different roles in their lives.

While they are often recognised for their workplace achievements, their other passions and commitments – the other facets to their personalities – are obscured or unknown.

The photo exhibition helps highlight some of these other facets of these inspiring Deakin women.
