On the 5th November 2021 we came together online to celebrate the women making a feminist difference in NSW and the ACT.

Twenty-eight feminist sisters were celebrated across 6 categories on the night.

Brittany Higgins was awarded the Grand Stirrer Award for “inciting others to challenge the status quo”.

We applaud these women who have kept the feminist legacy of Edna Ryan alive.
