Women of the Coal Rushes
A touching and inspiring narrative, this history chronicles the vital role played by women in the coal mining industry in central and southeastern Queensland, Australia. From the early days when wives supported their coal mining husbands through the women's auxiliaries to the fight for better working conditions and the recent move out of the home and into the mines, this well-researched record includes personal accounts of more than 100 women affected by mining as well as previously unpublished photographs.
