“Certain feminist and non-feminist celebrations of feminism’s legacies risk signifying that the feminist project is completed, thereby foreclosing alternative storytelling and inhibiting future feminist imaginaries. However, believing in the affirmative capacity of reflective and reflexive feminist remembering can help us to confront our own political and affective subjectivities to generate a more intersectional use of feminist memory that harnesses the power of past feminist radicalisms to imagine feminist futures that do not yet exist.”


« Certaines célébrations féministes et non féministes des héritages du féminisme risquent de laisser entendre que le projet féministe est achevé, excluant ainsi des récits alternatifs et inhibant les futurs imaginaires féministes. Cependant, croire en la capacité affirmative de la mémoire féministe réfléchie et réflexive peut nous aider à confronter nos propres subjectivités politiques et affectives à générer une utilisation plus intersectionnelle de la mémoire féministe qui exploite la puissance des radicalismes féministes passés pour imaginer des avenirs féministes qui n’existent pas encore. »

"These two textiles are soft monuments, folded into different archives, bearing the traces of the racist focalization of white women’s suffrage work, and commemorating not only the labours of their makers, but the changing capacities of the movement to remember itself in textile terms."

“In the years since its purchase, the “Trust the Women” banner has been transformed from an artefact that few Australians had known about, much less forgotten, into the preeminent symbol of the campaigns that allowed the country’s White settlers to consider themselves the world’s “most fully enfranchised” people.”

- James Keating, “‘Trust the Women’: Dora Meeson Coates’s Suffrage Banner and the Popular Construction of Australia’s Feminist Past in the Late Twentieth Century”
