A Defense of the Late Nineteenth Century White Suffrage Activists of Australia, New Zealand and Colorado

Theodora-Eliza Vacarescu


This paper addresses the history of late nineteenth century women’s suffrage and the history of the women involved in the struggle for female enfranchisement of Australia, New Zealand, and Colorado, which have recently been the target of fervent postcolonial criticism. The paper will attempt to defend the efforts of white suffragists by deconstructing the groundlessness and, occasion- ally, the falseness of postcolonial criticism.
