Stories of dedicated and resourceful women who demanded something different from the restricted lives of their mothers and grandmothers.

From Lillie Goodisson, pioneer of family planning; Eileen Joyce, world famous pianist; Enid Lyons, our first female cabinet minister, these are women who have affected the lives of thousands through their achievements. The Complete book of great Australian women tells the story of women who changed the course of history.
