Beyond the Ladies Lounge: Australian Women Publicansby Clare Wright
Infamous clique of hotels run by legendary local Australian women are discussed in this study of the inaccurate of perspective that Australian pubs are a man's domain. Archival and oral sources provide detail about how women, since colonial times, have achieved social power, autonomy, and independence by working as publicans. Folk songs, ballads, and literary representations accompany interviews and photographs that reveal the different characterizations of colorful, indomitable female hotelkeeps.
