Summary: This meticulously researched book offers an illuminating insight into the formation of the Australian womens movement. Pioneer feminist Henrietta Augusta Dugdale holds an important place in Australian history. Her witty, forceful campaigning helped bring womens rights to prominence in the second half of the nineteenth century. This biography of a thrice-married woman, who was born in St Pancras, London, during the reign of George IV and died 91 years later at Point Lonsdale, Victoria, seeks to understand why and how she came to Australia, became a vegetarian, a secularist, initiated the first female suffrage society in Australasia and, in her late middle age, published a futuristic allegory titled A Few Hours In a Far Off Age.
