Our Story

Hello and welcome!
My name is Sita, and I founded and run She Shapes History.

In 2021, I started She Shapes History to solve a problem – the lack of accessible and engaging women's history in Australia.
In the story of our nation, women have so often been cast as minor characters. As a society, it's easy to forget that women played pivotal roles in many of the moments that shaped Australia. And if you don’t think women have shaped history, why would you think they can shape the future?

After a lot of complaining to friends and family, I realised that if I wanted to see more women's history out there, I needed to do something about it. So, I started running walking tours on weekends to share a different, more diverse, and fascinating side of Australian history.

Over the past three years, She Shapes History has evolved in ways I never could have imagined. We've taken thousands of locals and visitors on tours, have grown into an amazing team of seven (read all about our team here!), now offer three different tours and run unique special events throughout the year. The best part is that it's no longer just a side project but my full-time job!

I feel so incredibly fortunate to be able spend my days researching and sharing stories about amazing women who have shaped history. Running She Shapes History is genuinely my dream job. It combines the three things I love most in the world: people, walking, and history!

So, thank you for supporting my dreams by joining our tours, engaging with us on social media, and telling your family and friends about us. Your support genuinely means the world and is the reason She Shapes History exists.

Looking forward to seeing you on a tour soon!
