Each year the Sydney Women’s Fund Saluting Sydney Women special event celebrates a trailblazing Sydney woman, a role model and contributor to social justice, the advancement of women in this city and beyond.

In 2020, Saluting Sydney Women is a little different.

This year, join us as we salute the many women working in women’s shelters and services assisting the most vulnerable women among us.

Together, we’re keeping the spirit of Saluting Sydney Women alive until we can meet again at the Museum of Contemporary Art in 2021 to celebrate more phenomenal Sydney women.
