About this title:

Synopsis:

The achievements of Australian women have long been overshadowed by the deeds of Australian men. Susanna deVries has remedied this with her outstanding research, and in this book she details the life stories of thirty-six courageous Australian women who broke down the barriers of prejudice. From Mary Penfold, co-founder of Penfold Wines; Lillie Goodisson, pioneer of family planning; Eileen Joyce, world-famous pianist; Mary McKillop, who dedicated her life to the poor, the sick and the destitute; Enid Lyons, our first female cabinet minister; to Stella Miles Franklin, one of Australia's most widely acclaimed authors, these are women who have affected the lives of thousands through their achievements. The Great Australian Women are: Sarah Frances 'Fanny' Durack, Annette Kellerman, Louisa Lawson, Dame Mary Gilmore, Martha Caldwell Cox, Dr Dagmar Berne, Dr Constance Stone, Dr Agnes Bennett, Joice NanKivell Loch, Eileen Joyce, Edith Dircksey Dowan, Dame Enid Burnell Lyons, Ethel Florence Lindesay, (Henry Handel) Richardson, Sister Elizabeth Kenny, Sister Lillie Goodisson, Ella Simon, Kundaibark, Florence Mary Taylor, Joan Mavis Rosanove (Lazarus), Roma Flinders Mitchell, Mary Penfold, Sister Lucy Osburn, Mary McConnel, Mary MacKillop, Dame Nellie Melba, Stella Miles Franklin, Rose Scott, Jane Sutherland, Margaret Sutherland, Louise Bertha Hanson-Dyer, (Caroline) Ethel Cooper, Margaret Rose Preston, Kylie Tennant, Oodgeroo Noonuccal, Nancy de Low Bird Walton and Dr Catherine Hamlin (Nicholson).

Product Description: This book talks about the stories of committed and resourceful women who demanded something different from the restricted lives of their mothers and grandmothers. The achievements of Australian women have long been overshadowed by the deeds of Australian men. Susanna de Vries has challenged this with her provocative book, detailing the life stories of 36 courageous Australian women, who broke down the barriers of prejudice.
