One of the first books to focus on women in NSW politics. It includes analyses of women's role in the NSW parliament, political parties and the public service, as well as their participation in advocacy and lobby groups.
The book offers fresh perspectives on familiar topics such as the achievement of women's suffrage and women's reasons for entering the parliament. It also examines some of the innovative ways that young women participate in politics. (back cover)
