Ruskin Rowe Press Limited Edition. Folio, hardcover, no d/w as issued. New. We have multiple copies of this limited to 500 edition. Pictorial boards with leatherette spine. Maybanke Anderson, a tireless advocate of women’s rights and wider social reform, was plagued in her first marriage by a harsh life, marked by the death of four of her seven children, financial difficulty, her husband’s alcoholism and then his desertion. However such circumstances compelled her into affirmative feminist action, influencing her attitudes toward suffrage and federation, women’s legal rights, the marriage state, and women and children’s rights in basic health and education.She successfully collaborated with other first wave feminists such as Rose Scott and Mary Windeyer as well as leading male figures. Through such collaborations she ensured the greatest chance of legislative reform and effective use of the women’s vote. In particular she encouraged the development of women’s legal rights in property and divorce. Most notable is the contribution made by her fortnightly publication Woman’s Voice. Thisnewspaper provided a platform for forthright discussion of social concerns such as suffrage,sex education, enforced maternity in marriage, as well as divorce. Advocacy of public health reform continued into WWI, when the spread of venereal disease and it’s devastating effects encouraged Maybanke to continue her cause for sex education. She also lobbied for the wider social responsibility of unmarried mothers and illegitimate children, as well as the importance of women’s wages.Her skills as an educator led her to become one of the fundamental promoters of free kindergartens in Sydney, the first of which she helped establish. She saw these not only as a means to counter the effects of poverty on children, but also as a social necessity for the development of children into valuable citizens. Child development and education were fundamental issues for both herself and her second husband Francis Anderson. Many of her later years were spent compiling histories of Pittwater and Hunter’s Hill, as well as maintaining regular correspondence with newspapers on topics of social concern while overseas. .
