Faith Bandler’s gloves

Faith Bandler is best known as one of the lead activists in the 1967 referendum campaign. Her father, a South Sea Islander, had been brought to Queensland as an unpaid labourer in the 19th century to work on the cane fields.

Bandler, whose mother was of Indian–Scottish descent, recalled wearing her white gloves when addressing predominantly white female audiences during her campaigning.
