Her Place Women's Museum Australia, in collaboration with The Women's Mural Documentation Project and artists, Megan Evans and Eve Glenn announce a forthcoming virtual tour of The Women’s Mural: From Bomboniere to Barbed Wire.  Re-imagining the Women's Mural – a virtual tour will be an exciting and interactive way to re-discover the development, history and significance of the much-loved Melbourne icon since its creation in 1986.  A unique example of Melbourne’s famous street art, the defacement of this feminist mural in February 2016 caused an outpouring of community support for this significant artwork.
