Trailblazers (2008)

This collaboration between the Immigration Museum and the University of Melbourne history program involved a project to bring together women who had been active in the fight for migrant women’s rights in 1970s and 1980s Melbourne. The result was the exhibition Trailblazers: migrant women activists, which ran at the Immigration Museum from 8 March to 27 July 2008. It was the first time that the efforts of migrant women in combating disadvantage and discrimination had been thus celebrated. The project leaders included Cate O’Neill, Adele Murdolo (Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health) and Diane Orlando (Women’s Domestic Violence Service).
