Summary
"The writings of the women who won the vote in New Zealand would fill several volumes, as the pen was their major weapon. In the pages of first "The Prohibitionist" and later the entirely woman-owned and managed papers "Daybreak" and "The White Ribbon", they debated ideas and issues, influenced the opinions of a huge body of women all over the country, networked, and campaigned. The vote was but one part of an agenda which included the economic independence of women, the right to divorce, the custody of children being vested in both parents, the equal right of girls to a decent education and of women to training and jobs in the professions, the improvement of women's health and vitality, reform in women's dress, the need for a payment to mothers and old age pensions, prison reform, peace and international arbitration. Important as they are in our political and social literature, these documents have languished in obscurity for one hundred years. Margaret Lovell-Smith has selected over ninety articles by sixteen women to make this volume a treasure for succeeding generations of New Zealand women ..." -- Back cover

contains biographical information
Biographical or historical data
Mary Müller wrote her appeal under a pen-name and had it distributed as a pamphlet in 1869, but did not reveal her identity as the author until after her husband had died. Margaret Cruickshank was in fact the second woman doctor, the first being Emily Siedeberg, but was probably the first woman to work as a general practioner.
