For much of the 20th century, the National Council of Women of Australia (NCWA) was the main body representing women to government in Australia, and, through the International Council of Women, to the world. This historical account of the NCWA tellsMoreFor much of the 20th century, the National Council of Women of Australia (NCWA) was the main body representing women to government in Australia, and, through the International Council of Women, to the world.

This historical account of the NCWA tells the story of mainstream feminism in Australia, of the long struggle for equality at home and at work, which is still far from achieved. In these days, when women can no longer be imagined as speaking with one voice, and women as a group have no ready access to the Australian government, the optimistic vision of the leaders of the NCWA is more important than ever.

Respectable in hat and gloves to the 1970s and beyond, they politely persisted with the truly radical idea that women the world over should be equal with men. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Australian History) [Subject: Social History, Australian Studies, Womens Studies, Feminism, Human Rights]
