It is with great sadness that we hear of the death of our good friend and disability advocate Sue Salthouse in a traffic accident in ACT Australia.
Sue was a strong, vibrant, inspiring intellectual woman who brought love and laughter to many who knew her. I came to know her as a strong disability and gender equality advocate, and over the years she has shared insights, challenged and mentored me through many gender equality discussions.
Sue was many things, the Chair of the Board for Women with Disabilities Australia, a member of WAVE and National Foundation of Australian Women and this year received the honour of being titles ACT senior Australian of the year.
What I will remember of her is her kindness, her laughter, her warmth and her ability make everyone feel heard. Thank you for being who you were in this world. May you rest in peace.
Our deepest sympathies go to Sue’s family, friends and communities.
