First Ladies - Significant Australian Women 1913 - 2013

Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, Australia. There is a wonderful exhibition of women who have achieved firsts during their lives. The exhibition is open until 16 March.

It is alway humbling seeing great people and this exhibition is no exception. These women have achieved so much, overcoming significant opposition and even antagonism. Although a small exhibition, there are only 26 portraits, it is very memorable in the variety of fields that are represented. I thoroughly recommend a visit. You will be inspired.

I have written a short review focusing on several women whose interests and achievements compliment this blog.
