Book Description Hale & Iremonger, Australia, 1996. Stapled Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. 1st Edition. 93 pages. 179 indexed pages with essays by Janette Bomford, Deborah Cass, Patricia Grimshaw, David Headon, Helen Irving, Ann Millar, Jan Roberts, Kim Rubenstein and Cheryl Saunders. The Federal conventions of the l890s were bereft of women. Yet, as the contributors to this volume show, women participated in the Federal movement and shaped the new Commonwealth. By connecting the l890s to the l990s these provocative essays open up the masculine boundaries of national politics both then and now. If Australians know little about the men who wrote their Constitution they know even less about the women who worked behind the scenes. This book moves from a detailed account of women's participation in Federation to an analysis of both the opportunities and obstacles for women built into the Constitution itself. This is essential reading for those seeking to understand the full history of our Constitution , and the way in which gender has shaped the political and legal institutions of the Australian Commonwealth. 12mo.
