The new physics syllabus for year 11 and 12 students in NSW contains no mention of specific women who have contributed to the field, nor their work.
NSW's proposed new rigorous physics syllabus refocuses on the fundamentals, but it'll require investment in teaching skills so all students can benefit from it.
The push for decolonisation could ironically end up trapping universities in a colonised curriculum.

Female scholars tend to assign more readings from women authors. But then male instructors assign more of their own work.
