- About Me
Hannah Viney is a PhD candidate at Monash University, researching Australian women’s anti-nuclear activism in the 1950s and 1960s. She 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.
