And yet the work of the Project, in particular The Australian Women’s Register, remains continuously under-funded, its outcomes entirely dependent on – and often directed by – ad hoc funding streams. At present we have no recurrent operational budget. Keeping the current Register content up-to-date is challenging. Ad hoc breeds ad hoc and our updating reflects this. Current staff on the project have a strong personal commitment and do what they can when they can.
We are increasingly being contacted and told of women who should be documented in the Register and we agree! We aim for diversity, but under the current circumstances can make no claim to be comprehensive; our funding model simply doesn’t allow for us to be.
We are seeking funding to rectify this situation! Every donation received will be used to add new content to The Australian Women’s Register.
