Word Fest Website Denise George

Acknowledge the 125th Anniversary of women's suffrage in South Australia and hear author Denise George talk about suffragist and social justice advocate, Mary Lee. Mary settled in Adelaide in 1879 and, undaunted by the opposition of antagonistic politicians and a conservative public, thrust herself into high profile campaigns in support of female refuge, improving women's working conditions and gaining women's suffrage. Denise George, through painstaking research, reveals the story of a woman who took on the Establishment, and won.
