Many Australian women played a significant role in the suffragist movement, but perhaps none more so than Portland-born and Melbourne-educated Vida Goldstein (1869-1949). The State Library of Victoria holds a copy of the Rose stereograph no. 11950, and its importance is underlined on the Culture Victoria website:

This photograph shows Vida Goldstein attending a Suffragette demonstration in London in 1911, accompanied by fellow Australians Mrs. Fisher and Mrs. McGowen… This photograph is a testament to the international impact of Australian suffragists, among the most progressive and active in the world.’
