SHE exhibition in Wagga Wagga

SHE is a three-in-one exhibition, celebrating women of Wagga through photographs, stories and recollections.

In Small Town Girl, photographer Elize Strydom documents the lives of teenage girls from small towns around the world.

HerStory profiles 50 significant women of Wagga’s past and present. Be inspired by stories of Wagga women including war heroes, an internationally renowned historian, a theatre queen, a tow truck driver who became a member of parliament, and the girl who saved drowning boys in Lake Albert.

Evolution includes the portraits and stories of 32 women who nurtured the Wagga Women’s Health Centre from 1979 to 2019. The Women’s Health Centre is a story of not only helping local women, but battling oppression and chauvinism. Learn about the obstacles they had to over come to provide local women with the health support they both needed and wanted. The things women today take for granted were once not so simple.
