International Women's Day

Article | Updated 1 month ago

The Western Australian Museum is made up of various research departments, billions of years of history, and millions of objects.

Working behind-the-scenes are people from all walks of life. Among our dedicated staff are passionate women who have helped to not only shape the Museum, but also our understanding of Western Australia and the world.

This International Women's Day, Friday 8 March, we look at the stereotypes, role models, and challenges that girls and women may face during their education and careers.

In the spirit of this day, four of our inspiring Museum staff members have shared some of their experiences, stories, and achievements.
