Description

The 20th Anniversary of the Edna Ryan Awards

Throughout her life, Edna Ryan (1904–97) worked towards making a better world— especially for women.

At this event we announce and celebrate the 2017 recipients of the Edna Ryan Award for 'making a feminist difference'.

Edna Ryan | Rachel Challen

Representing the Women’s Electoral Lobby, Edna Ryan successfully argued before the National Wage Case hearings in 1974 that many of the lowest paid women in the workforce were also family breadwinners, and should earn the same minimum wage as men.

The EDNAs (Awards) were created to honour Edna’s life and work, and to acknowledge the contributions other women make in the areas she cared about. They are a celebration of a political life and an affirmation of feminist activists. Over the years 233 Awards have been presented at an evening social event.

Nominations for the Awards will open in early August.

Find out more on our Facebook page or the Edna Ryan Awards website (http://www.ednaryan.net.au).

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Trades Hall is just a 5-minute walk from Town Hall Station, so public transport is definitely your best option. There is virtually no street parking, but try Wilson or Secure Car Parks for availability/access/cost. VERY IMPORTANT - ENTER TRADES HALL FROM DIXON ST. ENTRANCE.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Telephone: 0487-068-0235, or ednasawards@gmail.com

What's the refund policy?

No refunds are given.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes, but the name of the original purchaser is what has to be checked off on the attendance roll.
