Dame Enid Lyons

"Every subject, from high finance to international relations, from social security to the winning of the war, touches very closely the home and the family."

"We learned those things which still characterise the great bulk of our people—hatred of oppression, love of “a fair go”, a passion for justice."

Dame Enid Lyons, First woman elected to the House of Representatives (1943), First woman appointed to Federal Cabinet (1949)
