Jessie Street's part in the long 20th century campaign for human rights stretched over more than 50 years, from the suffrage struggle in England, to the removal of Australia's constitutional discrimination against Aboriginal people in 1967. Her work as lobbyist, government official and international activist created an intriguing trail of evidence. This website lets you follow that trail.
