With the granting of the vote to women in 1902 Australian suffragist Rose Scott told male politicians that their names would be remembered when the names of the suffragettes had been forgotten. Her words have held true for the best part of this century, until the publication of this 1993 book. Woman Suffrage in Australia tells the story of the struggle for female enfranchisement from the first stirrings of the movement in 1890, through the granting of the vote in South Australia in 1894, to the nationwide success of the suffragists' campaigns when the vote was granted by the Commonwealth in 1902. The author considers the international ramifications of the victory of Australian women, comparing their struggle with that of the suffragists in America and the United Kingdom and tackles the difficult question of why there are still so few women in parliament today.

Catherine Helen Spence was a charismatic public speaker in the late nineteenth century, a time when women were supposed to speak only at their own firesides. In challenging the custom and convention that confined middle-class women to the domestic sphere, she was carving a new path into the world of public politics along which other women would follow, in the first Australian colony to win votes for women. She was also much more -- a novelist deserving comparison with George Eliot, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman; a pioneering woman journalist; a 'public intellectual' a century before the term was coined; a philanthropic innovator in social welfare and education, with an influence reaching far beyond South Australia; Australia's first female political candidate. A 'New Woman', she declared herself. The 'Grand Old Woman of Australia' others called her.

Celebrated for her vibrant and distinctive pictures of indigenous flowers, artist Margaret Preston was an equally colourful and outspoken personality. Less well known is her legacy as a generous and insightful teacher and keen cook, and her deep sense of civic duty. She was passionate about the need for a modern national culture that reflected everyday life. For Preston, the building blocks of such a culture were not to be found in the Australian pastoral landscape tradition, but in the home and garden. Maintaining that art should be within everyone's reach, she published widely on the methods and techniques of a host of creative pursuits—from pottery, printmaking and basket weaving, to the gentle art of flower arranging. She devoted much of her career to the genre of still life, depicting humble domestic objects and flowers from her garden, and often painting in the kitchen while keeping 'one eye on the stew'. Drawing on recipes from handwritten books found in the National Gallery of Australia and richly illustrated with Preston's paintings, prints and photographs this book sheds new light on the fascinating private life of a much-loved Australian artist.

From small beginnings, trade unions developed leading to the birth of the United Trades and Labor Council in 1884, and to political action with the formation of the United Labor Party in 1891. This is a record of peaceful movements for reform, for the Chartist program and a wider democracy.

Here is Roma Flinders Mitchell, 1913-2000, a life spanning a century that transformed the position of women, changes she led. She was the first woman chancellor of an Australian university, the first woman in Australia to be made a Queen's Counsel and to be appointed a judge in a superior court and the first woman Governor of an Australian State. Roma Mitchell's life is also a story about contradictions. A life-long and devout Catholic, her religion aligned her with Irish working-class Outsiders, yet she gained a position at the heart of the Protestant Establishment, in a world almost exclusively of men.
