Who are these women?

Women who live, work and play in South Australia, but whose initiative could have impact anywhere. They are the unsung heroes, quiet achievers, the difference makers and the mavericks; each one dedicated to challenging the known or solving the unknown in their contribution to South Australian enterprise. Their fields of endeavour range from art to zoos; diving into the southern ocean; scanning the stars above; -or caring for the land in between. From studios to shop fronts; research facilities to workshop floors, laboratories to boardrooms.
