Description

Here is a story of the lives of ordinary Australian women from 1788 to the present.  Drawing on the information provided by hundreds of families, as well as material and photographs from archives never before published, Alison Alexander has created an enthralling and different history of a nation.

While famous women get a brief mention, this is mainly the story of the rest of us.  It contains humour and despair, tragedy and considerable achievements, many of them using until now.

The book is enlivened with brief and often funny stories of individual women’s hopes and experiences, while a series of snapshots reminds us of changes in important aspects of life, from fashion to education, from cooking to health.
