Thank you, Dame Quentin Bryce

The ANU Gender Institute was delighted and honoured to have the then Governor-General of Australia, Dame Quentin Bryce, launch the Institute in March 2011. Three years on, Ms Bryce's term as Australia's first female GG has come to an end and we would like to take this opportunity to celebrate and honor her commitment to "making it easier for women in all areas of leadership and public life".

"Her support for movements of social justice and feminism as one of those movements was integral to her career and she was never afraid to promote them."

A video podcast of the launch of the Gender Institute by Dame Quentin Bryce is available here.

A transcript of the speech given by Dame Quentin Bryce at her farewell reception is available here.
