Full Episode description

This year marks 100 years since the first woman was elected in parliament in Australia. To celebrate, we’re bringing back some of our favourite Fierce Girls episodes, celebrating trailblazing female politicians. When Edith Cowan was a girl, her mum died, and her father was sentenced to death for murder. She knew hardship … and it drove her to get a better deal for women and children who were then treated like second class citizens. She took her fight all the way to Parliament House in Perth when she became the very first woman in Australia to be elected. If you turn over a 50 dollar note, you’ll see Edith’s strong and determined face staring right back at you.

Narrated by journalist, Leigh Sales.

Extra narration by Peggy Webber.
