Clare Wright at Avid Reader (QLD)
Clare Wright

Bri Lee is in-conversation with multi-award winning historian and author Clare Wright for the launch of You Daughters of Freedom: The Australians Who Won the Vote and Inspired the World.

For the ten years from 1902, when Australia’s suffrage campaigners won the vote for white women, the world looked to this trailblazing young democracy for inspiration.

Clare 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: the redoubtable Vida Goldstein, the flamboyant Nellie Martel, indomitable Dora Montefiore, daring Muriel Matters, and artist Dora Meeson Coates, who painted the controversial Australian banner carried in the British suffragettes’ monster marches of 1908 and 1911.
