Description - Three Women of Faith by Margaret Press

In records of the years between 1840 and 1970 there can be found everywhere examples of women who were known for their sheer goodness as well as for their strength of purpose and creativity. Elizabeth Baker was devoted to the plight of the poor and part of the energetic push for female suffrage in South Australia; Mary Tenison Woods was the first woman to be admitted to the Bar in 1916, and a champion of women and children's rights; and Gertrude Abbott was an original member of the Sisters of St Joseph, who inspired, devised and administered St Margaret's Home for destitute girls and their babies in Sydney. For each of these women life was a compound of enterprise, suffering, faith and enlightenment.
