Challenging Women – Towards Equality in the Parliament of Victoria

By Madeline Grey

For the first time, the history of getting women into the Parliament of Victoria and their experiences once there is brought to life in a book. From the foundation of the Women's Electoral Lobby to the launch of EMILY's List, this engaging account draws on historical sources and the MPs' experiences and perceptions to tell the story of a vital 25-year period that laid the foundations for women's increased political representation.
