Honouring Women in the Territory

Honouring Women 2020

Invested by Her Honour The Honourable Vicki O’Halloran AO, Administrator of the Northern Territory

Northern Territory women can be acknowledged for their commitment across professional, public and community ventures in various fields through the Australian honours and awards system.

The Northern Territory has many extraordinary women who enrich our lives and communities, and are leading the way for other women to follow in their footsteps.

The awards and honours highlight Territorian women who work tirelessly to change our communities for the better.

If you know a woman who deserves to be recognised for their outstanding contribution in their community or field nominate them for an Order of Australia. Download or complete a nomination form from the Governor-General’s website.

Australian honours and awards are announced several times a year:

  • Australia Day - 26 January
  • Queen's Birthday - 8 June
  • Australian Bravery Decorations - April and August

International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on March 8 and is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

The campaign theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2020 is an ‘equal world is a world enabled’ - #Eachforequal

The day has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911.
