Pen Portraits Summary


Pen Portraits: Women Writers and Journalists in Nineteenth Century Australia by Patricia Clarke

This work tells the story of the achievements of Australia's earliest women writers. Despite being confined to a life within the home in a frontier society, some talented - and determined - women in colonial Australia managed to carve out careers as writers. Among them were the authors of popular serials, newspaper feature writers and columnists and even a foreign correspondent. But most pioneering of all were the founders of the new women's magazines - fighting for the right to vote, the right to an education, for the freedom to work and freedom from unhappy marriages. "Pen Portraits" tells the stories of these women's lives. The author has been a journalist and writer for many years and lives in Australia.
