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

The achievements of Australian women have long been overshadowed by the deeds of Australian men. Susanna de Vries has remedied this with her outstanding research, and in this book she details the life stories of thirty-six courageous Australian women who broke down the barriers of prejudice.

From Mary Penfold, co-founder of Penfold Wines; Lillie Goodisson, pioneer of family planning; Eileen Joyce, world-famous pianist; Mary MacKillip, who dedicated her life to the poor, the sick and the destitute; Enid Lyons, our first female cabinet minister; to Stella Miles Franklin, one of Australia's most widely acclaimed authors, these are women who have affected the lives of thousands through their achievements. These are the women that helped to forge the Australia we know today.

The complete Book of Great Australian Women, a combination of Susanna de Vries's bestselling books Great Australian Women and Great Australian Women Volume 2, tells the story of women who changed the course of history.
