📍 LA TROBE ART INSTITUTE
👤 Michelle Scott Tucker with Ruth Ford

What if Elizabeth Bennet had married Wickham, instead of Darcy? According to Michelle Scott Tucker, she may well have evolved into a competent, talented, determined entrepreneur. That’s what happened to real-life Australian woman Elizabeth Macarthur, who, if history were fair, would be the face on the $2 note, instead of her feckless husband John. Michelle talks to Ruth Ford about how she redresses that unfair history in her biography of the woman who established Australia’s wool industry.
