Nominations are now open for the Tasmanian Honour Roll of Women, which recognises women and women’s organisations that have made a significant contribution to Tasmania in a range of areas.

The Honour Roll plays an important role in helping to preserve the stories of women and women’s organisations to ensure these contributions are not forgotten in the passage of time, and can inspire future generations.

There are a number of categories in which women or women’s organisations involved in military history, veterans affairs and defence could be considered for induction including: defence, health, community, education and training, and cultural heritage.

The Tasmanian divisions of the Australian Women’s Army Service (AWAS) and Australian Women’s Land Army (AWLA) were inducted onto the Honour Roll in 2013 and 2011 respectively for their service to defence.
