Book Launch – Volume 2 “An Educated Woman” June 2014

After the dedicated work of President Sylvia Hovey, and with editorial assistance from Past President Bernice Anderson, the second edition of “An Educated Woman” was finally launched. This edition records the lives and thoughts of GWQ SC members (including their university and professional experiences), and follows the initial book, which was completed in 2001.

SC Member Helen McBride (Past National President of AFUW Qld) presented an excellent tribute and history of “An Educated Woman” and officially launched this volume.

Professor Karen Nelson (who had recently joined the USC faculty as Pro Vice Chancellor – Students) attended, representing USC and spoke of the close connections between GWQ SC and USC.
