Enid Lyons, Leading Lady to a Nation

$49.95 AUD

This is the story of an extraordinary woman – mother of twelve, prime minister‘s wife, first woman member of the House of Representatives and the first woman in a federal cabinet, radio broadcaster, newspaper columnist, author of three books – Enid Lyons was for many years the best-known woman in Australia.

Anne Henderson takes us on an intriguing tour of the first half of 20th century Australia – a time when politics was more fluid yet with many of the problems we face today – political party dysfunction, the widening gap between rich and poor, rural and urban, economic recession and the role of women in public life.
