Hannah Viney a PhD candidate at Monash University, researching Australian women’s anti-nuclear activism from 1945 to the 1970s. Her expertise is in contemporary Australian history, and her recent work has stretched from Melbourne’s penal history in the late nineteenth century to women’s political activism in the mid-twentieth century. Hannah is interested in women’s political history, and how Australian women engaged in the tumultuous political climate of the Cold War. She is particularly fascinated by expressions of women’s political interests in the decades before the Second Wave feminist movement publicly challenged gender expectations in the 1970s.
