Biography/history Annie Goldflam was born 30 January 1955 in Melbourne, the second of four children, to Leo and Lita Goldflam. When she was five the family moved back to her parent's home town of Perth. Annie attended East Claremont Practicing School ('Prac'), and then went on to Hollywood High School and the University of Western Australia where she completed a Bachelor of Science with Honours, majoring in psychology. By this time she had become a feminist with a strong commitment to social justice and soon after graduating she went to teach in the newly independent nation of Papua Niugini with Australian Volunteers Abroad for two years. On returning to Perth Annie taught for a couple of years at Foothills, an alternative school. In the next decade she worked in a variety of positions in the community services sector including as an Employment Development Officer (Women and Migrants) and was the founding co-ordinator of both Learning Link and West Australians for Racial Equality. During this period Annie became increasingly involved in a range of social justice campaigns including the Campaign Against Nuclear Energy, Aboriginal land rights, the peace movement and as a proud lesbian, Reclaim the Night, the annual Perth Pride Parade and the Coalition of Active Lesbians. In 1993 Annie established the Centre for Research on Women (CROW) and became its founding Director. She published extensively on themes of gender, sexuality and cultural diversity. Through her one-woman consultancy established in 1987 Annie designed and conducted more than 120 interactive professional development sessions in Australia, PNG and Mauritius. Annie also served as committee member or office-bearer on a variety of NGO's including Community Aid Abroad, the Women's Electoral Lobby, the Australian Association of Adult and Community Education, the Fremantle Multicltural Women's Health Centre, the National Consultative Council of the World Summit on Social Development and the W.A. Coalition of Peoples. In 2006 early onset Alzheimer's disease was diagnosed. In 2011 Annie was inducted into the Western Australian Women's Hall of Fame. Annie died 15 February 2013 in the Mount View care facility in Maldon in the care of her partner Patricia Lee. (From Annie's sister Barbara Goldflam)
