Rebels and Trailblazers: Billy Griffiths at Bendigo Writers Festival

They were energetic and committed, and outraged by the tyranny of a system that excluded them from politics and power. Some were half-loafers, willing to settle for the vote for women with property. The full-loafers demanded universal adult suffrage. What kind of women were these battlers? How did their own lives play out against this monumental achievement of winning the vote? Billy Griffiths talks to Clare Wright about her “Daughters of Freedom” and what their role in history means for the Australian nation.
