Writing and walking the history of early women's suffrage in Brisbane

Deborah Jordan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Earlier generations of suffragettes and suffragists failed us-or so it was assumed by many second-wave feminist historians-because the patriarchy continued despite their battles and their victories. They failed to liberate us, and they failed, too, to address issues of race. For my generation of 'brazen hussies' who took to the streets and stopped Australian involvement in the Vietnam war, or so it seemed to us, our tactics were a better way for women to create social change.
