Zelda D’Aprano chained outside Arbitration Commission 1969.

usually commences from Spring Street near Parliament Station. Allow 2-2.5 hours.   The guide book on on Melbourne women sites by Celestina Sagazio is an excellent reference. See also an alternative walk route.  Another great reference is Radical Melbourne 1 and 2 by Jeff and Jill Sparrow – see our Radical Melbourne Tour.

Celestina describes Melbourne’s the womens’ trail as  “places or objects designed or commissioned by women; places where poor and marginalized women found themselves; and places from which women were able to reform or contribute to society in many ways, for example, as politicians, feminist lobbyists, doctors, artists, actresses and singers.”
