Caroline Chisholm was a pioneer in establishing a place for women in public affairs. Her unceasing efforts to affect social change were heroic against a background of primitive conditions and religious controversy. In her biography Margaret Kiddle explores these achievements and also considers Chisholm's career in the context of the changing status of women in the Victorian period.
