With your support, together we can shape history. Help us share the stories of women who have been forgotten, ignored and marginalised.

Our Mission

She Shapes History is a social enterprise dedicated to sharing the stories of the women who have shaped Australia. 

Bushrangers, convicts, diggers, blokes and battlers are often the main characters of Australian history. In the story of our nation, women have frequently been cast as minor characters.

Rarely have women been seen as pivotal to our nation’s story. Despite persistent exclusion and invisibility, women have continued designing, creating, building, imagining, protesting, protecting, writing, caring and leading social change.

They have made some of the most significant contributions to Australian history. 



Our mission is to use walking tours to share the contributions of women who have been forgotten, ignored and marginalised.

Walking tours offer an opportunity to share knowledge and women’s stories in an inclusive and non-judgmental context.

Walk with us through a familiar landscape to encounter an unfamiliar history. Our tours celebrate the diverse and remarkable ways women have shaped Australia. 

We aim to inspire you to reflect on how you too can shape history.

She Shapes History shares the diverse, subtle and innovative methods women used to shape history.

She Shapes History acknowledges the individuals, communities and institutions that supported women to shape history.

She Shapes History recognises women's enduring legacies on Australian culture and society.
