Vale the Hon. Susan Ryan AO – 1942-2020


Susan’s sudden death came as a great shock to all; one day she was alive and well and active; then she was gone. Her contributions to Australian education and anti-discrimination and to the advancement of opportunity for women were remarkable. Susan continued to share her wisdom as a regular panelist on the ABC’s The Drum and many other platforms.

In 2004, she gave the Address at the GIFCC’s Commemoration; here it is, with an introduction by Tom Power.

Susan was a long-term active GIFCC Member, Supporter, and Donor.
Susan’s life has been cut short far too early; her death is a huge loss to Australia.
