Honouring Australian Women

Just a quick post: in light of Australia Day, I got to thinking about awesome Australian women. I’m interested in an exchange of names of awesome Australian women over the years.  I’m history-oriented, so my immediate thoughts are towards those in the history books, but I’m interested in what everyone else thinks.

    Maybe Louisa Lawson (suffragette in the late 1800s) or Mary Mackillop (opened many schools in rural/poorer areas, Catholic)? I’m not very well versed on their achievements, only assuming I know their names for a reason. The women you have are pretty awesome. Should probably chuck in the PM too, just in case 😉
