Summary

The Women's Action Committee grew out of initial meetings held by Dr Zelda D'Aprano, Alva Geikie and Thelma Solomon in 1970. WAC's campaigns highlighted the inequality of women's pay scales by paying only 75% of the fares when riding on public transport. WAC incorporated itself into the growing Melbourne women's liberation movement in mid 1972.
