Notable Women

The Alliance celebrates the achievement of women in whatever field of excellence they pursue. We have compiled two photo galleries of notable women: Women of Achievement and First Women. Click here to download a pdf list of Notable Women.

Women of Achievement

Women of Achievement provides a showcase of women who have made a significant achievement in their career or service to the community and have been recognised for their accomplishments. All women in this list attended an Alliance member school, and they can attest that the education they received in a girls' school was a catalyst for later aspirations and actions.  

First Women

First Women are pioneering women who attended girls' schools and have gone on to lead the way in some aspect of their life and work, from being Australia's first female Governor-General to New Zealand's first female Prime Minister.

Please note: The Women of Achievement and First Women photo galleries are arranged alphabetically by surname.

Alliance members: If you have notable alumnae from your schools who you would like to be recognised in these pages, please contact the Executive Officer.
