Description

Join 2014 Nib and Stella Award winner Clare Wrigth in conversation with Suzanne Leal to discuss this important work

You Daughters of Freedom: The Australians who won the vote and inspired the world brings to life a time when Australian democracy was the envy of the world—and the standard bearer for progress in a shining new century.
For the ten years from 1902, when Australia’s feminist activists won the vote for white women, the world looked to this trailblazing young democracy for inspiration.

Wright’s epic new history tells the story of that victory—and of Australia’s role in the subsequent international struggle through the eyes of five remarkable players.
