Emma Miller – seamstress, trade union organizer, suffragist, and founder of the Australian Labor Party – is born.  She was an advocate for equal pay and equal rights for women and a committed activist and organizer until her death in 1917.  The epitaph on her gravestone reads: “The world is my country; to do good is my religion.”
