I would like to begin by acknowledging the traditional owners of this land, the Noongar people, and pay my respects to their elders past and present. It is my pleasure to be here this morning to deliver the 7th annual Edith Cowan Memorial Lecture, and I thank the University for the invitation. Edith Cowan was clearly a giant of Western Australia’s history. In all the firsts we celebrate on International Women’s Day, Edith Cowan is a standout as the first woman to prove her capability as a Parliamentary representative.
