Millicent Preston Stanley
This room is named after Millicent Preston Stanley, Member of NSW Parliament (1925 – 1927). In 1925, Millicent Preston Stanley became the first female member of the NSW Parliament. Today, we celebrate the contributions of this trailblazing politician with a special room named in her honour.
A conservative and a feminist, Millicent was in the NSW Women’s Liberal League, Sydney’s Feminist Club, the Women Justices Association and the Nationalist Party for many years. Millicent was a driven politician, advocating fiercely for child welfare reform and equal rights for women.
