UP & DOING! is a special live-streamed event hosted by the Parliament of South Australia for South Australia’s 125th anniversary of women's suffrage.
Current Members, Parliamentary staff and a large support cast will re-enact the passage of the Adult Suffrage Bill from 1894, which ultimately gave South Australian women the right to vote and the right to run for the House of Assembly. The re-enactment will follow the Bill through the Legislative Council and House of Assembly, with the speeches and interjections drawn from 1894 Hansard.
UP & DOING! will stream on 18 December 2019, exactly 125 years after the Adult Suffrage Bill passed both Houses of Parliament.
