Feminist Hall Tours

More than 200 women have participated in a union women’s history tour of Trades Hall which commenced in June with the unveiling of our monument to Zelda D’Aprano.

In the 90 minute tour, activists learn about women who’ve been organising and fighting for equality for over a century, from Equal Pay activist Zelda D’Aprano, to Tailoress’ strike leader Helen Robertson, to the Clerks Union‘s pay equality leader Muriel Heagney, and peace activist and Working Women’s Centre founder Gwen Godecki.

These tours connect today’s feminist activists with the history of collective struggle in union.
