Local News Story
Augusta Zadow was a prominent advocate for women’s suffrage and improved conditions for the women and children working in South Australia’s factories.
SafeWork SA has awarded two scholarships, worth $10,000 each, which recognise the legacy of Augusta Zadow, a prominent advocate for women’s suffrage and improved conditions for the women and children working in South Australia’s factories.

A record number of applications were received this year, covering a broad range of issues affecting women in the workplace. The winners are Gemma Beale, who is researching the safety of female casual and seasonal workers during South Australia’s ‘Mad March’, and Renae Fernandez, who is identifying occupations performed by women that contribute to an increased risk of impaired fertility.

"The scholarships build on Augusta’s achievements by funding the ongoing
improvement of the health and safety of women at work through further education, research or solutions to a work health and safety issue faced by working women," says Bryan Russell, executive director of SafeWork SA.
