Life on the Job
There are over 120 “Life on the Job” people and their career stories. 
 This month, we are featuring Grata Flos Greig, Australia's first female lawyer.

Grata Flos Greig

misogyny, #Tradwife, Language and the gender debate, and, much more


Read her story

Go and have a look at her activity:

"The Gender Debate" - Now and then

"Media fascination with Flos’s attire did not diminish once admitted to practice.
She delivered a speech in 1905 to the third annual National Congress of Women of Victoria on a paper she wrote titled, “Some Points of the Law Relating to Women and Children”.

The reporter noted that Flos “treated her subject in a masterly manner, and gave an immense amount of useful and, at times, startling information”.
But Flos’s “stylish, yet simple, gown of grey voile, with cream lace vest” was equally newsworthy as were “her pretty black hat and white gloves”.
The fashion choices of other (male) speakers went unmentioned."

A good activity for students in Years 10 - 12 studying Media, Politics, Debating, Ethics, IB, Philosophy, Theory of Knowledge.
