Goldstein, Vida Jane (1869–1949)

from Argus

The death last week of that outstanding woman Miss Vida Goldstein has passed apparently almost unnoticed by the majority of women of this State, who owe her a great debt. Miss Goldstein was a pioneer in the fight for the women's suffrage. A gifted speaker and a woman of balanced judgment, she was an able and compelling advocate of the cause she championed. We have a memorial garden to the pioneer women of this country in the Botanic Gardens. Could not some plaque be placed there, or at least a tree planted, in memory of this brave, brilliant, and capable leader of women?
