This banner was created by Melbourne-born artist and activist Dora Meeson (1869-1955). It was first held aloft in a 10,000-strong women’s march to London’s Albert Hall in 1908. In 1911 Meeson helped carry her banner in the contingent of Australian suffragists in the Women’s Coronation Procession in London.
