Two talks will be presented:

Hannah Viney (Monash University) will speak about women’s prison labour in Victoria and how it changed at the turn of the twentieth century with the influence of the women’s movement.

Freya Willis (Oxford University) will speak about how, in the 1970s, women challenged gender hierarchies within the Australian meat industry and the Australasian Meat Industry Employees’ Union, and forged new modes of leadership.
