Melbourne people might be interested in an event being held at Public Record Office Victoria on Wednesday 14 March 2012 (that’s tomorrow!). The “Women, Children and Welfare History in the Archives” seminar is part of celebrations for Women’s History Month.

Tomorrow’s seminar will be filled with stories and discussion about women and their contribution to Victorian society.
