'Canterbury Women Since 1893' - Regional Women's Decade Committee, Christchurch

Pegasus, Christchurch 1979, paperback, 158pp. Some wear given age and reading, but otherwise reasonable condition.

'Canterbury women, since they gained a vote in 1893, have continued to fight for a wide range of causes - some important, some trivial; some lost, some won. This book records public and domestic activities of Maori and pakeha women in both town and country. It describes the hazards of childbirth under primitive medical care, the misery of the Depression years, the physical slog of pre-electricity housekeeping; it shows also the lighter side, when new ideas on everything from sports to fashions, and new gadgets like the bicycle and the typewriter, were starting to change women's role in society. Canterbury has produced some remarkable women, particularly in the fields of education, broadcasting, politics, health and social reform. This is a valuable account of what they have achieved.'
