Una Gault, psychologist, was born in Young in 1925. She studied psychology at the University of Sydney and after graduation went to work for the Department of Repatriation at Concord Hospital. Una later gained an MA (Arts) and PhD in psychology and worked as a lecturer and later senior lecturer at the University of New South Wales and Macquarie University in Sydney. She was an avid feminist and was actively involved with numerous women’s groups including the Women’s Electoral Lobby, Jessie Street National Women’s Library, Women and Psychology, Women at Macquarie and Women in Education. She and four other female psychologists published Emotion and Gender: Constructing Meaning from Memory in 1992 based on their research using their own childhood memories. Her other passions were literature, classical music, movies, and cats. She maintained an enormous library, housed in Sydney and Coledale. She remained fully engaged in women’s issues until her death in 2012.
A celebration of Una Gault’s life is being held at the Jessie Street National Women’s Library in conjunction with Women and Psychology Interest Group of the APS and the NSW Women’s Electoral Lobby.
