From the acclaimed author of The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka comes the thrilling tale of the brave Australian women who fought for the vote.

For the ten years after 1902, when Australia’s suffrage campaigners won the vote for white women, the world looked to this trailblazing young democracy for inspiration.

Clare Wright’s epic new history tells the story of that victory – and of Australia’s role at the forefront of the subsequent international struggle – through the eyes of five remarkable players: the redoubtable Vida Goldstein, flamboyant Nellie Martel, indomitable Dora Montefiore, daring Muriel Matters and the self-effacing artist Dora Meeson Coates, who painted the controversial Australian banner carried in the British suffragettes’ monster marches of 1908 and 1911.

Clare Wright’s Stella Prize-winning The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka retold one of Australia’s foundation stories from a fresh new perspective. In You Daughters of Freedom she brings to life a time when Australian democracy was the envy of the world – and the standard bearer for progress in a shining new century.

You Daughters of Freedom is part two of Clare Wright’s Democracy Trilogy, which began with The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka. The final volume will be a history of the 1963 Yirrkala bark petitions.
