100 Years WA Anniversary

December 2023 marks the 100 Years milestone of when women won legislative change removing barriers to being admitted and to practise law in Western Australia. This significant milestone would not have been possible without the courageous work of pioneering women who have gone before including Edith Cowan, as Western Australia’s first female parliamentarian who led this legislative change in 1923.

In May 2023 as part of Law Week, the Law Society joined forces with Women Lawyers Western Australia to mark this milestone at the Long Table Lunch Live. Welcoming over 250 members of the legal community at Frasers State Reception Centre in Kaarta Koomba (Kings Park), the afternoon heard from some strong and insightful voices who shared their personal insights on what it is to be a woman in the law today.

To mark the 100 year anniversary, the Law Society created the #100faces100years campaign. A callout was made for all women, who have been admitted to practise law in Western Australia, to submit their photos for inclusion in a special anniversary photo gallery. Below are photos received to date which showcase the diversity and talent of women who have provided a voice and contributed to the legal profession. If you would like your photo included on our website, the only criterion is that you have been admitted to practise law in Western Australia. We welcome photos from all women who fit this criterion. Please email membership@lawsocietywa.asn.au to submit your photo.

Hover on the photos below to see some of the women who have been admitted in Western Australia and who make up our profession, both past and present.
