Noble & Notorious: Forgotten Women from Proclamation to WWI

(PRG 1160/24, State Library of South Australia)

Be inspired by stories and images of forgotten South Australian women, and be hands-on with some special collection items.

What was it about the wealthy Mrs Herbert Fisher, aka Thistle Anderson, that both scandalised and entranced Adelaide society in the early 1900s? Why do twenty-first century South Australians owe so much to Mary Lee, Augusta Zadow and Kate Cocks? What terrible events placed Elizabeth Woolcock and Mary Schippan in the public eye?

Join us as we remember a few of South Australia's many forgotten women. Whether they were shining lights, sinners, or sinned against, their stories are well worth hearing.
