Diane Hague | For Making a Feminist Difference in Workforce

(Awarded Posthumously)

Diane Patricia Hague (1952-2021) initially worked for the Public Service Association focusing on women’s issues. She joined TAFE NSW as a Business Studies teacher and worked with a large group of women to organise the Socialist Feminist Conference at UNSW: Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves.

Diane worked diligently to improve the rights of women throughout her working life and she continued this work in her retirement with her involvement in the Jessie Street National Women’s Library.

She was committed to the collection, preservation and promotion of knowledge and understanding of the cultural heritage of all women; to social justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and international friendship and peace.

Diane was an activist, a feminist, and trade unionist, and her life and work will underpin the efforts of future generations of women as they continue to improve the status of all women.
