Two world wars, a global depression and the Cold War transformed the social fabric of Australia.

For many teachers with a desire to make a better world for women and children, this meant action beyond the classroom.

Join us for this presentation by Dr Cheryl Griffin to celebrate Women’s History Month.

Listen to how a prominent Victorian teacher and activist Doris McRae addressed social, industrial and political issues such as equal pay and employment opportunities for women.

Presented during Women’s History Month in collaboration with the Royal Historical Society of Victoria.
