Stella is a major voice for gender equality in Australian literature.
Stella drives significant cultural change by elevating the work of Australian women writers – cis, trans, and non-binary inclusive. We promote greater access to, and participation in, the world of books and writing to combat gender bias in society.
Founded in 2012, the organisation’s flagship program is the Stella Prize – an annual literary award celebrating Australian women’s writing.
Stella also seeks to influence the national conversation around gender equality in Australian literature through our range of research, advocacy, and education programs.
