In Episode Twelve we discuss Clare Wright's award-winning book, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka

A well-worn foundation story of modern Australia and the so-called ‘birthplace of Australian democracy’, the stories of the Eureka Stockade and the gold miners who rose up against an oppressive government linger in our national story. And yet, for too long those stories were missing half their characters. Where were, where are the stories of the women of Eureka?

Published in 2014, Clare Wright’s award-winning book, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka writes those forgotten women back into the story. Ten years of research and writing created a bold and entertaining book that pays tribute to the women of Ballarat and their place in the story of Eureka.
