Saturday 21 May General Meeting 2.00pm – Minding Her Own Business

Speaker: Dr Catherine Bishop, Research Officer, School of Humanities and Communications Arts, Western Sydney University.
Dr Catherine Bishop is the author of a new history that populates the streets of colonial Sydney with businesswomen earning their living in a variety of small - and sometimes surprising – enterprises, many of them married and thus not legally in control of their own property. There are few memorials to colonial business women, but if you know where to look you can find many traces of their presence. This is Dr Bishop's first book.
