ELIEAN GIBLIN: A FEMINIST BETWEEN THE WARS

Patricia Clarke

ISBN 9781921867842, MOnash University Publishing 2013

During World War II, Eilean Giblin kept diaries that are witness to the suffering and futility of war. Giblin also led a life rich in little recorded feminist achievements. Clarke charts the influence of Giblin’s suffragette aunts in England, her arrival in Australia as a war bride after World War I, her battles for equal citizenship and women's education and her championship of the ‘Dunera’ internees.
