During World War II, Eilean Giblin kept diaries that are a powerful witness to the immense suffering and futility of war. After following obscure hints in her diaries, Patricia Clarke discovered that Giblin also led a life rich in previously little recorded feminist achievements. Her life unfolds in this biography - the influence of her suffragette aunts in England, her arrival in Australia as a war bride after World War I, her battles for equal citizenship and for women's education and her championship of the Dunera internees.
Join author Patricia Clarke and the Governor-General, Her Excellency the Honourable Quentin Bryce, who will officially launch the book.
