Queensland state election, 1998. Following the 1998 state election, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party emerged as a new political force in Queensland. As indicated by this map published by the Electoral Commission of Queensland, One Nation captured 11 seats after receiving nearly one quarter of Queensland’s primary vote. For the coalition parties, major upsets included the loss of the safe National seat of Barambah. The 1998 election result demonstrated that beyond the capital and urban core, One Nation’s ‘conservative’ agenda commanded widespread popular appeal.

Jean Devanny, Sugar Heaven

“Organisation is for the purpose of developing the latent talents of the women. See how we live! Nothing uplifting about our lives is there? We’ve got no objective. We live and breed and die. Life isn’t meant to be like that. Life is meant for joy and expansion and objective living. I think it’s the job of women to rear a race of young who will live better lives than we live; who will be able to create a better world than we, their elders, have been able to create. It’s not a question of what women can do; it is what can’t they do?
