Victorian Honour Roll of Women

The Victorian Honour Roll of Women was established in 2001 to recognise the achievements of women from the Australian state of Victoria. The Honour Roll was established as part of the celebrations of Victoria's Centenary of Federation.[1]

Public nominations for the Honour Roll open in the second half of each year and the inductees are determined by an independent panel of women.[2] As of 2012, 497 women have been inducted onto the Honour Roll.[3] The Office of Women's Policy produces commemorative booklets that contain biographical sketches of each woman inducted onto the Honour Roll.[4] In 2012, the 20 inductees were selected from over 140 nominations and were honoured by Minister for Women's Affairs Mary Wooldridge.[5]
