This is an auction for THE VOTE, THE PILL, AND THE DEMON DRINK: FEMINIST WRITING IN NEW ZEALAND, 1869-1993, by Charlotte Macdonald.

"This collection of feminist writing, edited by leading historian Charlotte Macdonald, traces the history of the fight for women's rights in New Zealand. Starting with nineteenth-century suffrage campaigns, the authors by turns are lobbying for the welfare of destitute women, exposing domestic violence, and heralding the rise of the 1960s feminist movement. This collection of newspaper columns, pamphlets and academic articles, telling a powerful but often overlooked narrative of New Zealand’s history, is an invaluable resource for those exploring the country’s past."
