An online E book of AFMW members and their mentors

An online E book of AFMW members and their mentors

The online AFMW Herstory E-Book, gives AFMW members the opportunity to contribute to the AFMW oral tapestry, by forming a compilation of  ‘our mentoring stories’, in which we  honour those who have changed our lives.

Making this an online AFMW story book, encourages us each to consider contributing to building this over the years, into a collection of medical women’s key take home messages’, as we share the wisdom we each have gained from our own lived experiences.  The ‘golden nugget of wisdom’ that we would share with someone who asked us about what we have learned.

In addition, it provides us with the opportunity to acknowledge and honour those who have impacted our career. The template you download gives you a framework to work with, and you are invited to add your own personal flavour.


Add Your Story

Please download the Herstory template (Word doc), add your details and return the completed form to [email protected].

Please also submit a photo of yourself with this. It can be a ‘selfie’ taken with a good camera that you would be happy to have others see.


From here

AFMW will feature a Herstory submission each month in the eBulletin, and create a dedicated page on the AFMW website to view all Herstories.


Thank you for your contribution to this landmark AFMW Herstory E-Book.

President, Australian Federation of Medical Women
