White Cards/Black Feathers: The Political Gets Personal - Broken Hill, 1915

Labour History (1999), 76, (1), 95–106.

Abstract

An incident in Broken Hill early this century raises questions about the position of women in radical towns. The conflict between maintaining solidarity among workers and difference between genders is exposed. A surprising consensus is reached which reflects notions of justice and fair play that take precedence over well-accepted trade unionist and masculinist ideologies. One woman discovers her power lies in the right to demand that men adhere to paternalistic codes.
