Library Renamed After Pioneer Of Women’s Rights At Work

    Activist Jean Arnot is immortalised at PSA House.

    One of the PSA’s pioneers for pay equity, Jean Arnot, was honoured at the 2022 Women’s Conference.

    The refurbished PSA/CPSU NSW Library was renamed the Jean Arnot Library at the conference, with speeches from State Library Delegates.

    At the State Library Ms Arnot first saw how women in NSW were paid less than male colleagues, so began agitating in 1937 for equal pay for equal work.
