SOUTHBANK NEWS, FEB 2023: 'Local author championing gender equality welcomes more statues of women.'
EXCERPT: We must remember this is not a matter for political point-scoring. It is vital that we get on with acknowledging the women who created the culture, commerce and community of Melbourne......
Ms Coote said: "much better candidates for statues would be world-changing suffragettes Henrietta Dugdale and Bella Guerin, city-making entrepreneurs Lillian Wightman and Mietta O'Donnell, first woman premier Joan Kirner, legendary diva Judith Durham, or any number of other women celebrated in my books.
The list of candidates is extensive and extraordinary. Statues define what matters to us. Excluding women from the catalogue of things we value, and respect has real-life, often dire consequences."
