Drysdale women who signed 1891 suffrage petition

September 22, 2018

 

The Victorian parliament website has searchable details of the 30,000 Victorian women who signed the 1891 womens suffrage petition.

We have searched the petition and found that there were 68 women from Drysdale who signed it when the population of the town in 1891 was only 340 people. Perhaps our readers can fill us in on the lives of some of these pioneering local women

The following "snip"is from the State Parliament website at https://www.parliament.vic.gov.au/about/the-history-of-parliament/womens-suffrage-petition
