Twenty-five Australians are being recognised for their influence and positive contribution to society

Sunday Life is marking 25 years of publication this weekend with a special anniversary issue featuring a cast of female change-makers.

Twenty-five Australians are being recognised for their influence and positive contribution to society in a first-of-its-kind cross-platform execution which sees each “Trailblazer” receive her own digital Sunday Life magazine cover.

Dual athlete Ellyse Perry, First Nations woman and AFL executive Tanya Hosch along with ovarian cancer campaigner Camilla Freeman-Topper appear on the cover of the print edition published with The Sun-Herald and The Sunday Age newspapers this weekend.

Sunday Life editor Pat Ingram said, “At the core of Sunday Life’s philosophy is a celebration of women, so it makes sense to recognise the women who have inspired us in the past 25 years, and those leading the charge in the future.”

Penny Wong, Magda Szubanski, Zoë Foster Blake and Ash Barty are also among those commemorated in the anniversary issue.

Sunday Life columnist Jamila Rizvi said: “In a fast paced world and 24 hour news cycle, we rarely take a moment to pause and reflect. But these diverse and distinguished 25 women and their many achievements are so very well worth your time to discover, to consider and to celebrate.”

Rizvi and fellow Sunday Life columnist Brooke Boney, along with senior editors Monique Farmer, Damien Woolnough and Ingram served as judges during the nomination process.

“We drew on the vast experience of journalists across the newsroom for their nominations and these were narrowed down and hotly debated until our judging panel reached its final conclusion,” said Ingram.

Rizvi added: “A list such as this is never complete. Its purpose is to begin the work of wondering, to spark debate and discussion, to start a conversation that continues well into the night, over a shared bottle of wine, reflecting on the many and vast achievements of Australian women these past 25 years.”

Sunday Life’s The Trailblazers issue will be available in this Sunday’s edition of The Sun-Herald and The Sunday Age.
