The Women Should Have a Voice: Edith Cowan’s legacy of social justice in Western Australia

This exhibition at the Old Law Court Museum explores the social justice legacy of Edith Cowan. Elected in 1921, Cowan was the first woman admitted to an Australian Parliament, where she vowed to represent the interests of women and children.

Marking the centenary of her entry to Parliament, the exhibition commemorates Cowans enduring influence in Western Australia. Also on offer are the popular Build the Old Court House craft activity and the Guilty or Not Guilty court scene dress-up activity for children.

This is a free event to attend, no tickets needed.
