Soon it'll be the 125th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage. South Australia became the first place in the country to allow women to vote and stand as MPs in 1894. It took years of campaigning, letter writing, signature gathering and lobbying and set the precedent for other states/territories to do the same. Let's celebrate this milestone with an online auction!
The item is a suffragette poster signed by former PM Julia Gillard AC (unframed). Online auction closes 31st October 2019. Put your bids in over here.
N.B. It is important to note, however, that full suffrage including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women was not achieved until 1962 for federal elections and 1967 for all state/territory elections.
