Australia's Female Publicans

by Clare Wright

Melbourne University Press, 2003, [First Edition], ISBN 0522850715, black and white photographs, paperback

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, minor rubbing to edges and corners, no inscriptions,  uncreased spine,  (see photographs)

"Clare Wright's award-winning research challenges the myth that the Australian pub is a male domain, revealing the enduring and dynamic presence of female publicans behind the bar.  Wright takes the reader on a pub crawl through this history: from Sarah Bird, the 27-year-old convict who was Australia's first female licensee, to Big Poll the Grog Seller, the miners' darling on the goldfields, to Cheryl Barassi and Dawn Fraser today."
