LAST year a retired judge, AFL women’s trailblazer, an actor, writer and director as well as a WWII veteran were among inductees into the WA Women’s Hall of Fame.
Valerie French, Jan Cooper, Jenny Davis and Anne Leach, who passed away in June last year, joined the Hall of Fame in 2017.
In 2018, nominations are being sought for women who have contributed to the community, business, health, education, arts, culture and sport, as well as the new category STEM, which acknowledges inductees in the areas of science; technology, engineering, and mathematics.
WA Women’s Hall of Fame chairwoman Fiona Reid said the event had been incredibly successful over the past seven years with more than 160 women and women’s groups being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
ISHAR Multicultural Women’s Health Centre will host this year’s WA Women’s Hall of Fame with support from Lotterywest and the Department of Local Government and Communities.
