Australian House of Representatives Division
The Division of Henty was an Australian Electoral Division in Victoria. The division was created in 1913 and abolished in 1990. It was named for the Henty family of Portland, the first European settlers in Victoria. It was located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, including at various times Brighton, Caulfield, Malvern and Oakleigh. For most of its history it was a safe seat for conservative candidates, but after 1969, when it was cut back to the Oakleigh area, it became a marginal seat. In 1974 it elected Joan Child, the first female Labor member of the House of Representatives and the first female Speaker.
