Biography of a pioneer Australian feminist who worked effectively for women's rights, childcare, sex education, and female suffrage, but who is virtually unknown today. Born in England in 1845, she experienced great deprivation and loss in her own life but worked tirelessly for others throughout her long and eventful life. Includes endnotes, a bibliography and an index. Who was Maybanke? To her contemporaries she was... "About the most intellectual woman in Australia. A tower of strength for good, the world is a better place because she lived in it and beautified it." - The Sydney Morning Herald. "With the late Miss Rose Scott, Mrs Anderson was the driving force behind the women's agitation that culminated in women's suffrage in New South Wales...an able speaker and voluminous writer on all subjects in the interests of women and children." - The Daily Telegraph. "Without doubt the ablest woman in NSW. One may truthfully say this noble lady's life was one of almost incalculable benefit to her country...A genius for initiating movements for education and social betterment" - Professor H. Tasman Lovell, Australia's first professor of psychology
