Historian: Dr Patricia Clarke. Guest: Mia Freedman.   The Fijian folk music used in this episode is courtesy of the  David Fanshawe World Music Archive (1967 - 94) Song: Vakamalolo - Sitting Dance (Fiji) Discover more here: https://fanshawemusic.com/   Further Reading and References Articles by Stella Allan trove.nla.gov.au/collection/bold-types/newspapers/explore?l-pubtag=Stella%20Allan Articles by Jennie Scott-Griffiths  trove.nla.gov.au/collection/bold-types/newspapers/explore?l-pubtag=Jennie%20Scott%20Griffiths Jennie Scott-Griffiths, The Australian Woman’s Weekly, 18 September 1915, p.13 Jennie Scott-Griffiths, ‘What Women Demand’, The Australian Worker, 30 November 1916, p7 trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/145764010 Stella Allan, ‘Lyttelton Times engaged Dominion’s first woman political reporter’, Christchurch Stan-Sun, 16 October 1958, p2

  • Bold Types – Wild New Frontiers
    Content warning: this episode contains descriptions of war casualties and sexual harassment. Edith Dickenson was a fearless adventure-seeker who covered the Boer War with clear-eyed empathy as Australia's first female war correspondent.  She also hunted boar from an elephant’s back in India whilst wearing a crinoline skirt, with the kids in tow.  Patricia Karvelas appreciates that today’s crop of successful women journalists stand on the shoulders of giants like Edith. Host: Amy Remeikis. Historian: Dr Patricia Clarke. Guest: Patricia Karvelas.
