We are excited to announce our first three finalists, including a remarkable group of professionals and a community yoga practitioner working for a greater cause, who all embody the Women of the Year spirit and demonstrate how everyday women can accomplish incredible things!

The REDD Centre Team:
Vladimira Foteva MSci, Michelle Wellham BFA, Dr. Yixue Qiao PhD and Dr. Kimberley Williams MD are a multi-disciplinary team working to build knowledge and investigate the societal taboos surrounding menstruation, while increasing focus on women’s and menstruators’ health. They are working tirelessly to provide up-to-date medical research to women in the community no matter what life stage they are in.
Rach Mac (Broken Crayons Still Colour):
After suffering horrific domestic violence, Rach went on to find Broken Crayons Still Colour with the hope of helping women in the community break the cycle of domestic violence. She assists victims with emergency relocation, the tools needed to begin anew and even assistance with navigating the court system.
We are thrilled and humbled to see the high calibre of applicants and want to congratulate all our finalists for the incredible work they do.
