Talking History: Mary Lee – In Search of a Turbulent Anarchist
In 1894, SA granted women the right to vote and become elected members of parliament, thanks in no small part to Mary Lee. Her pursuit for social justice and remarkable legacy is revealed as we follow the trajectory of her life from Ireland to Adelaide. The disappearance of Mary Lee's journals and most of her letters, along with a dearth of recorded women's history, kept her contribution to history hidden for more than 125 years. Author Denise George has examined records in Ireland and Adelaide to reveal the compelling story of a woman who took on the establishment, and won.
