'Once Women Won the Vote' is a colourful mural on the facade of the Warrnambool Art Gallery that pays tribute to the everyday women involved in the 1891 Women’s Suffrage Petition who courageously fought for women’s’ rights, suffrage as well as social and legislative reform that would allow many Victorians the right to self-determination, agency and justice; a profound legacy that continues today.
Her Place Women’s Museum Australia is participating in the exhibition, Once Women won the Vote held at Warrnambool Art Gallery.
Her Place’s contribution features filmed interviews with 10 Victorian women, an accompanying booklet and curriculum-linked educational resources.
We are also delivering a Teachers’ Professional Development and Student Education Tour. Please see our Education page for more details.
This project was made possible by the generous support of Womens Health and Wellbeing Barwon Southwest, Warrnambool City Council Health and Wellbeing, The Victorian Women's Trust, Dulux Warrnambool and Her Place Women's Museum Australia.
