100 Years of Victorian Women's Right to Vote

Australian women have long been at the forefront of political change and civic reform. Over the decades, women have fought for their beliefs: the right to vote, professional advancement and equality under the law. Watch the inspirational stories of eight women who were all first in their respective fields in this biographical documentary project. Produced by ACMI in partnership with the Victorian Government, through the Office of Women's Policy Department of Planning and Community Development as part of the 2008 Celebration of the Centenary of Women's Vote.
