Our thanks to her and our condolences to her family.
Dame Margaret was a Liberal politician who was Australia’s first woman in Cabinet with a ministerial portfolio, the first female senator in Cabinet and the first woman to hold a major economic portfolio as Minister for Finance during the Fraser Government. She was also Minister for Education and Minister for Social Security.
She gave personal advice during the period of the development of the NFAW to Marie Coleman and she was one of the distinguished sponsors of the Foundation. We acknowledge the huge contribution she made in her public life.
