Biography/History

Edna Minna Ryan, née Nelson (15 December 1904 – 10 February 1997) was an Australian feminist and labour movement activist and writer. She is considered a role model and mentor to a whole generation of women. The Edna Ryan Awards, also known as "the Ednas", were created in 1998 by a group of her friends and the NSW Women's Electoral Lobby to honour her life and work, and to acknowledge the contributions by other women that make a feminist difference.
