An article in The Age newspaper by Farah Farouque reports that women are trailing behind in numbers in the Order of Australia numbers, with 391 men recognized compared with 167 women. Of 924 nominations considered, 657 were men and 267 were women. The Australian Federation of Medical Women would like to recognize and honour the outstanding achievements of Australian medical women and encourages its members to nominate suitable women for these and other awards.
