This is an auction for MAUD & AMBER: A NEW ZEALAND MOTHER AND DAUGHTER AND THE WOMEN'S CAUSE 1865 TO 1981, by Ruth Fry.

"Women and men who have taken part in campaigns to improve the lot of women in society today will recognise many familiar concerns in this biography of two early women activists. Maud Pember Reeves and her daughter Amber were, at different stages, caught up in the surge of the women's movement in New Zealand and England. Through links with the Fabian Society, they became involved with some of the colourful literary and radical figures of their day - G B Shaw, Beatrice and Sidney Webb and H G Wells among them. The story of their personal lives, which were not without complications, is told against a background which throws light on the social development of their times. As the wife and daughter of the eminent politician and journalist William Pember Reeves, Maud and Amber have been relegated very much to the background in previous accounts. This book sets the record straight. For the general reader, the result is a lively and fascinating story; for the women's studies student and the social historian, it is essential reading."
