Sue Edmonds | For Making a Feminist Difference in Arts

Sue Edmonds is a feminist singer, musician, songwriter, entertainer and social activist whose involvement in the arts speaks to and about Australian women. With her skills in guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo and voice, Sue’s energetic cultural work has segued with the many issues facing women – domestically/personally, in the workplace, and socially and politically for more than four decades.

In 1985 Sue was Musician in Residence with South Coast Labour Council which involved community engagement in the face of the widespread upset at BHP’s discrimination against women workers. Sue’s feminist cultural work in the arts makes clear bold statements that inspire other women to action to improve the status of women.

She shows that feminism, like other serious social change movements, is about lived experiences, and that women are strong change agents.
