Strength of Purpose: Australian Women of Achievement 1888-1950

Every nation needs heroes and heroines, but the lives of Australia’s greatest women have been largely ignored for much of its history. This book, the sequel to “Strength of Spirit”, details the life stories of over 30 courageous Australian women, indigenous, migrant and European, who overcame prejudice against women entering the professions, the arts and sport, in the period from Federation to the mid-twentieth century.
