Memory-Keepers: Political women’s strategies to document their history and preserve their own memory

In 2020, Sharon Crozier-De Rosa took up a prestigious National Library of Australia Fellowship to conduct research on Australian political women during the period 1900 to 1960.

The women she will study are those who worked tirelessly for reform and yet whose achievements have been overshadowed by the dominant tale of men’s triumphs, which are far more commonly documented in the history books. In the face of difficult odds, however, these women have managed to preserve their own documents; their own histories.
