Vale Hon Susan Ryan AO

A leader who was a trail blazer, who spent her life advocating for others:
– first Labor Senator for the Australian Capital Territory
– first woman to hold a Cabinet post in a Labor Government
– Minister for Education and Youth Affairs
– Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women
– Special Minister of State
– Age Discrimination Commissioner with the Australian Human Rights Commission
– Disability Discrimination Commissioner
– Bridget Award from Irish Friends of Labor

Susan has been a member and a great supporter of the Lansdowne club for close to 35 years. She will be remembered for her sense of fun support of Ireland and most importantly a prime leader on woman’s affairs and legislating the sex discrimination act as a minister in the Hawke government

Condolences to her family and friends. 💚
