THE HALL OF FAME
Award nominations have now closed.
To celebrate 50 years of women’s refuges in Australia, we're honouring the women who have kept the refuge movement alive. These unsung heroines have kept refuges running, often with limited (or even no) funds and have saved the lives of thousands of women and children.
We'll be awarding 50 'Elsie' Awards, one for each year since the founding of Elsie Women's Refuge in 1974, to women nominated by our community.
Nominations closed on 9 February 2024 and winners will be announced shortly.
It is not necessary to attend the conference to be eligible for an award, but, pending available funding, we will endeavour to financially support the Elsie Award winners to attend the Conference. We will contact the successful nominees in mid-February so they have time to arrange to attend the Conference.
