Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Founded by a group of leading feminists, the National Council of Women recognised that women needed more than the vote to have influence in parliament. This history of the council looks at the values they espoused, and discusses the recess of the council in 1906 and its revival twelve years later. The lives of leading women involved are also discussed, including Anna Stout, Kate Sheppard and Margaret Sievwright. The text is illustrated with photographs and reproductions of contemporary documents.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 130-141) and index.
