Updated: Jun 23, 2019
The Australia suffragists movement in the early 1900’s worked tirelessly in some cases at great personal risk to allow Australia women, second only to NZ in the world, the right to vote. This was the result of concerted activism led by a group of white, middle-class, urban women, with pockets of working-class support, and fortified by a Protestant temperance vision. What do you think those women would say to us now? Have we lost our passion to take a stand for change?
