YPRL recently hosted banners in five branches as part of Family history month in August. Over 300 signatures were gathered in acknowledgment of the achievement of the original Monster Petition and as a commitment to pursuing equality for women in all aspects of Victorian life. These banners will be sewn together at the end of the year and displayed at the November Finale and the Parliament House open day.
The 1891 Women's Suffrage petition can be searched online and is a great resource for both local history and family history researchers alike.
