Women with attitude: 100 years of political action
Women With Attitude introduced the women who fought so strongly for the vote, mapping their success in the suffrage campaigns, and traced the lives of the pioneering women who stood for political office. Looking at the formation and purpose of a wide range of women’s groups, from conservative to radical, from working class to upper class, and from rural to urban, the exhibition explored the changing strategies of women in the political arena and highlighted the issues that have motivated women to become involved in Australian political life.
