Collection code: W Women
Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Note Merle Thornton is one of our game-changing pioneering feminists who helped bring about positive change for generations of Australian women. In her most audacious act, in 1965 Merle, along with Rosalie Bogner, chained herself to the bar at the Regatta Hotel in Brisbane to protest against the law that excluded women from public bars in Queensland, bringing about the end of segregated drinking in that state. But that's just one achievement, in a life rich in defiance, daring and determination.
