Leading Female Experts and Personal Brand: Who Do You Influence?

Last week Time Magazine shared some of the world’ best known Personal Brands: the profiles of the world’s 100 Most Influential People. Jeff Bezos graces the cover and each person featured is a celebrity or political figure. The article about each person is written by another influencer. For example, Melinda Gate’s profile is written by Sheryl Sandberg. She describes Melinda as ‘a fierce advocate for women around the world and that her impact will be felt for generations’.

The edition is certainly inspiring, yet the challenge for us as women is that sometimes we see Influencers like this and think ‘what can I offer? How can I possibly make such an impact?’

And when I hear women say this, my thoughts are drawn to a special lady called Lillian Armfield.

Lillian Armfield was born on 3 December 1884 at Mittagong, New South Wales, daughter of George Armfield, a labourer, and his wife Elizabeth. Educated locally, she was highly intelligent, well schooled and was described as having a good head for numbers.

Before her time

In 1907 she became a nurse at the Hospital for the Insane, Callan Park, Sydney, where she looked after female inmates. Due to her competence and kindness to patients, in 1915, the medical superintendent recommended she apply for a newly established post. This post was as a police recruit in the NSW police force. At the time there were no female police officers in Australia, but this little hurdle didn’t deter her. She thought she would be well suited to a career on the front line.

Lillian was successful in her application and in her starting role was paid the grand sum of 7 shillings, 6 pence a day. Unlike her male colleagues, however, Lillian’s contract specified that no uniforms were to be provided and no overtime or expenses were to be allowed.

After a year’s probation she was enrolled as a special constable, however, her promotion came with a catch. In what would seem unbelievable in today’s workplace, Lillian was required to sign an agreement with the inspector-general of police. This made her subject to the same rules and discipline as her male colleagues. However, without the right to any compensation for injuries received in carrying out her duties. In addition to this quite overt discrimination, Lillian was also required to forego her right to superannuation and pension benefits upon retirement.

Overseas interest

The experiment of Lillian Armfield’s appointment was watched with intense interest overseas. She was the first plain-clothes female detective, exercising the same powers of arrest and working side-by-side her male colleagues. So foreign was this concept of a female policewoman, that it gained international attention.

In Paris, a captain for the French police declared that policewomen would be the subject of jeers and prompted the following jingle in a Sydney newspaper:

“In gay Paree no police you’ll see parading around in skirts

For France prefers her mademoiselles as dainty, pretty flirts,

No Sergeant Armfield there you’ll find, forever on the roam,
