Ceiling Smashers - 125 South Australian women who changed the world

The Advertiser Newspaper recently published a series of articles on South Australian women they called 'ceiling smashers', as part of a campaign to mark the 125th anniversary of SA women's suffrage this year. The series included women from five different sectors including:

  • Education, science and medicine
  • Arts and justice
  • Politics and policy
  • Sport, media and religion
  • Business and innovation

Now they have put out a call for nominations of other women that have changed the world, and shaped our state. Help unearth uplifting stories of women in South Australia that have not been recognised by nominating them as a Ceiling Smasher!
