The We Paved the Way Room

This room honours 500 female-identifying and gender non-binary Australians who have paved the way in fields including Art, Community, Literature, Politics, Science, Sport and General Awesomeness. They have made flourishing contributions to our national life and culture and they show that gender should not be a barrier to success.

The “We paved the way” room features an old-school rocking chair, gender quality themed vintage book stack, heritage YWCA art and timeline of Australian feminist achievements. A perfect recipe for an empowering Sydney trip!

Featured Artwork

Artwork featured in the We Paved the Way room is sourced directly from the YWCA historical archives. YWCA NSW has supported women, children, young people and communities for 130 years and has amassed an incredible array of artefacts over the years.
