Trailblazing Women of Ballarat highlights some of the amazing women associated with Federation University and its predecessor institutions

From the first woman to graduate from any Australian university to leading artists, those who gazed towards the heavens, and others who broke through male dominated barriers, women are not only present but deserve to be celebrated. 

This exhibition, originally held at the iconic School of Mines (SMB) library, showcases these significant contributions and untold stories through items from the historical collection.
