    [10 March 2000 - 12 March 2000]
    Series: National Library of Australia, Oral History and Folklore Collection
    5 digital audio tapes (ca. 308 min.) Ryan speaks of her childhood as the youngest child of feminist Edna Ryan, how she spent her adolescence largely alone with her mother as both her elder siblings had left home and her mother was recently widowed; the influences on her growing up in a politically active household including the impact on her of her mother's political involvements and the emotional expectations imposed on her as a daughter; her current project in writing a biography of her mother, her education including her participation in the burgeoning cultural life of Sydney in the 1960s, her move to Canberra in the late 1960s where she was employed as a Manning Clark's research assistant which motivated her pursuit of postgraduate studies in Canberra and Sydney; her doctoral thesis on Tasmanian Aborigines lead to groundbreaking work though her thesis remained uncompleted when she returned to Canberra soon after the election of the Whitlam Labor government in 1972, her involvement in the Priorities Review Staff report on child care. Ryan speaks of her subsequent work in the Secretariat for the Interim Committee for the Children's Commission and in the Women's Affairs Section, which was then a branch of the Dept. of Prime Minister and Cabinet; her resignation from the Commonwealth Public Service in the mid-1970s in order to pursue her academic career; following appointments in Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide, she currently holds the Chair in Australian Studies at the University of Newcastle and heads the School of Humanities at its Ourimbah Campus; her philosophy of education; her hopes for her students as citizens of an Australian democracy.

  16. Julia Ryan interviewed by Sara Dowse [sound recording]
    [26 September 1990]
    Series: National Library of Australia, Oral History and Folklore Collection
    8 sound tape reels (ca. 97 min.) Julia Ryan, feminist, speaks of the National Foundation for Australian Women; its history and aim to promote feminist ideas into the far future; how the composition of members has changed over the years; the changes to home-based women; the advent of "second-wave" feminism; the history of the women's movement in Canberra starting formally in June 1978; the women's movement in Canberra operating informally from 1969 as an off-shoot from the Sydney group lead by Lyndal Ryan; how the movement grew through networking; why their meetings were closed to men; how 1972 saw an increase in political involvement with their support of the Aboriginal Embassy tent and the establishment of the Women's Electoral Lobby; their resistance to takeovers by both moderate and extreme political groups; the opportunity feminists had during the Whitlam years to gain influence in the bureaucracy with the appointment of Elizabeth Reid in 1973 as Whitlam's adviser on women's issues; how the group engaged in consciousness-raising; the emergence of femocrats like Mary Menange and Anne Somers threatened to depower women by transferring too much responsibility to government bodies. Ryan recalls the highlights of 1975 as International Women's Year and its contribution to the Labor Government dismissal; how feminism eventually influenced the right-wing of politics; the relationship between gender and class in social oppression; the move from Marxist politics to post-modern Foucault models for change and the emergence of women's studies as a discipline.
