The Honourable Susan Ryan AO, the first female minister in a federal Labor Government, has died today in Sydney. A true legend of the women’s movement. A sudden and awful loss for her family and her many, many friends.

Vale Susan Ryan – the first Labor woman to hold a federal cabinet position. An ACT senator, she was a genuine trail blazer and pioneered the 1984 Sex Discrimination Act, later serving as age discrimination and disability commissioner. She was a great resource for journalists.
