Abstract:

"She was the 'guardian angel of the Anzacs', accordiong to a French veneriologist. To a bishop she wa sthe 'wickedest woman in Britain.' Soldiers described her as a saint. Their mothers regarded her as an 'agent of the devil.' Six decades before the term 'safe sex' was coined, Ettie Rout went to war to protect soldiers from venereal disease. In Paris she ran a complete social and sexual welfare service for the Amzac soldiers of World War One - collecting them on the station platform, guiding them to Madame Yvonne's brothel which she regularly inspected, looking after the sick and running a counselling service. Her prophylactic kit was adopted by both the New Zealand and Australian governments. But although all New Zealand soldiers going on leave were handfed a copy of her kit, her own couintry made her persona non grata. The French, on the other hand, awardedher the medal they struck for the English martyr Edith Cavell. ..."--Book flap.
