Tickets

$39 - $59 available through Brisbane Powerhouse



Take a journey through the life of a true trailblazing Queensland woman, Merle Thornton, an Australian feminist activist, author and academic.

Merle made history when she and Rosalie Bogner famously chained themselves to a bar rail to protest the exclusion of serving women in public bars. At the vanguard of the equalist movement in Australia, whilst rearing her four children in the 50s, Merle helped establish the very first Women’s Studies course at The University of Queensland in 1973 and founded the Equal Opportunities for Women Association in Brisbane.

Join Merle in conversation with her daughter and beloved Australian actress Sigrid Thornton for this delightful and insightful journey into the extraordinary women that helped pave the way for the freedom women enjoy today.

Interspersed with the songs that made Merle’s life, played on stage by emerging all female neo-soul outfit Pink Matter, with special guest vocalist Tiana Khasi.
