125th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in South Australia

Join the City of Unley as we celebrate the 125th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage in South Australia by hosting a series of events.

In 1894, after decades of activism, women in South Australia were awarded the right to vote and stand for parliament. South Australia was the first electorate in Australia to give equal political rights to both women and men, a huge step toward gender equality.

  • Unley for Equality Exhibition | Ongoing from Monday 18 November
