2SER shares some of the factory story

Lately with the current civil actions 2SER took an interest in what is known as the female factory riot. If you know about a female factory woman who was in the factory in October 1827 they may have been involved. This as the first known workers action in Australia.

If you have a female factory ancestor who was a part of this action feel free to share her story here in ‘the yard’
