Named after Dame Enid Murial Lyons, the first woman elected to the Australian House of Representatives and to serve in Federal Cabinet, the ENID Network is an online platform which aims to inspire and support university womxn of all backgrounds.
The ENID project was originally started by Nina, Adri and Honey in 2016 when they were students at the University of Sydney. Together, they built up the platform with a significant online following dedicated to helping high-school students to ‘Aim High and Think Big’.
In 2019, ENID was passed on to Kate and Amy, who transformed the network into a space for female-identifying and non-binary university students to share their stories.
In its current iteration, ENID is an online publication with a strong focus on intersectional feminist issues, as well as personal experiences. Our goal is for ENID to be a place where women’s voices on a huge variety of topics are celebrated, and where content is shared that can empower and inform women within and beyond the university community.
Meet the team
Brunch enthusiast and Instagram addict, Fran loves nothing more than a good book, a glass of rosé and when her online shopping arrives on time. When she’s not working, you’ll find her at the beach, procrastinating from all responsibilities, attempting to exercise and patting other people’s dogs.
Rosie may call Sydney home now, but she originally hails from the small town of Geraldton, Western Australia. She is currently writing her thesis on performance poetry. If her head isn’t buried inside a book, Rosie can usually be found in a yoga inversion, exploring the viability of a career as a bat – in case the whole poet thing falls through.
Lucja is a Religion and Philosophy student from King’s College London (KCL) who was on exchange at the University of Sydney during 2019/20. She has written publications for KCL’s The Tab and Amnesty International, as well as contributing to ENID. Lucja is far too disorganised for someone who claims to be organised and devotes way too much time to her bunny.
WEN YU YANG
Wen hails from Taiwan, a subtropical island on the pacific rim. She writes short stories, occasionally poetry, and it is taking her forever to finish a novel. When she is not shapeshifting in daydreams, she can also be found on Netflix, volleyball courts, coastal and forest trails, or her reading couch.
Born and raised at the beach, Caitlin believes her ridiculous knowledge of musical theatre and modern history will one day land her a dream job. Until then, you will find her with a G&T or an actual tea reading all the books in her personal library and buying more at an unstable rate. Currently doing a Masters in Creative Writing, Caitlin does often too many things at once and currently that is ice-skating, re-reading old Taylor Swift lyric booklets, taking Polaroids or a combination of all three.
