Professor Marilyn Lake AO, has graciously agreed to speak about the history of voting in Victoria, when women were able to vote, when voting became compulsory and the part League of Women Voters Victoria (LWVV) played. (Prof Lake was to be keynote speaker at the 2021 MVMV - reimagined due to covid.)
We will also celebrate the 100th + 1 Anniversary of the Australian Federation of Women Voters (AFWV) and the 75th+2 anniversary of the League of Women Voters Victoria (LWVV).
The AFWV’s first president in 1921 was Bessie Rischbieth, a national and international leader in women’s rights activities during the last century. Her financial legacy is administered by the League of Women Voters Victoria today and it assists with the funding of the NCWV’s annual event, My Vote My Voice.
This is a COVID safe event, with distancing and sanitising included.
Please notify NCWV of your attendance on [email protected] or interest in receiving the ZOOM LINK
