A history of the legislation affecting women and children during the past century and earlier shows that much has been achieved, and that the pace of change has quickened recently. No sudden alterations followed the granting of women's suffrage, but the means were there for change. Slowly reforms were written into the statute books, forming a basis for further reform. The utopia some dreamed of has not eventuated. Some problems have been dealt with; others equally urgent have replaced them.
In Her Own Name tells the important history of changes, from 1836, documenting how South Australian women moved from subordination towards equality. The achievement of women's suffrage in 1894, after an intensive struggle, was central to their emancipation.
In Her Own Name is a political and legal history interwoven with personalities, issues and events. It gives a comprehensive view and perceptive analysis of women's changing status and role in a pioneering Australian state during its first 150 years.
