About this Event

The Campbelltown public library will be hosting a presentation about women's sufferage in South Australia followed by a special viewing of a documentary which tells the fascinating story of how Australian women became the first in the world to gain full political rights.

December 18th, 2019 marks the 125th anniversary of landmark legislation that enabled women in South Australia – for the first time anywhere in Australia – to vote in general elections, and to stand as members of Parliament.This incredible achievement was the end result of years of campaigning, letter writing, signature gathering and lobbying by men and women in the South Australian community that put their passion into action.

Gaining the vote was a huge step towards gender equality in South Australia, and meant that women could participate in public life by having their say at general elections.

Join us in commemorating this momentous occasion!

Light refreshments will be served.

Time: 12:30pm-2pm

Cost: Free - bookings essential
