About the Housewives Co-op
The Housewives Co-operative Association of Victoria formed in 1915 to give housewives access to cheaper commodities during a period of post-war inflation. The Co-op successfully mobilised large numbers of ordinary women for the benefit of non-party-political aims. As time went on, Co-op members became increasingly active in lobbying to improve the civli and political status of women.
Historical Victoria newspaper reports of Co-op meetings in Melbourne and regional Victoria reveal the influence and achievements of the organisation during its inaugural years.
