International Women's Day - bringing it home

Paying tribute to three Port Melbourne women who have directly and deeply influenced me.
Liana Thompson: [pictured here] last mayor of Port Melbourne and first mayor of Port Phillip for leading through a difficult period of change. Lyn Allison: former Port Melbourne councillor and Democrat senator for Victoria, for initiating action on the environment on Port Melbourne council, for campaigning on planning issues and ongoing commitment to the community and indigenous coastal vegetation. Pat Grainger: for ongoing community activism, her knowledge of Port Melbourne's history - recent and more distant - her capacity for work, and what little I know of graphic design
