crumbling misogyny

Flash back 120 years and many of the most educated men would have postured that granting women the right to vote and to be elected to Parliament 'amounts to one of the most negative of women's agendas which will never work or be implemented, largely because most women, along with all the men of Australia think it completely divisive and bereft of any merit' !

Why should women vote when men already vote on their behalf?, was the clarion call.

Updated, why should women have their own legislature when they're already allowed to attend men's legislatures?

The Colonial misogynists got rolled and if the Federated version can't see the continuum between achieving the vote and parliamentary representation and achieving a legislature, they're destined to be consigned to the same rubbish bin of history as their antecedents.
