Suffrage Debates Re-enactment Screening in Old Parliament House

In 2019 South Australia celebrated 125 years of women being able to vote and run for Parliament. We staged a re-enactment of the 1894 debates, filmed in Parliament House. At this event, we’re going to play the recording on the big-screen in the Old Chamber. Join us for a history-themed movie night in the room where the debates actually occurred! We’ll take you on a quick tour beforehand to get you ready for the screening.
