Ballarat's Great Women
In 2007 women of Ballarat were first nominated for recognition in a publication by Women's Health Grampians, supported by the Zonta Club of Ballarat.
Among Ballarat's Finest profiled 113 women who had made a significant contribution to our community, and was launched on International Women's Day 2008.
In succeeding years, further nominees have been added to the Honour Roll now known as Ballarat's Great Women. The program is organised by the Zonta Club of Ballarat.
On Thursday 22 March 2018, a new group of women were honoured at a dinner hosted by the Zonta Club of Ballarat:
