Main : Australia, Australian history, labour, land, non-fiction, war, work
260 x 185 mm
Based on the highly successful ABC television documentary of the same name, this book excavates the history of thousands of women who worked on farms during World War II. City-bred, in the main, and only reluctantly taken on by farming communities, the women proved themselves to be tough, resourceful and indefatigable workers whose efforts kept Australian agriculture alive at a critical time. Comprising interviews, letters, photographs, posters and original documents, this book provides a unique and neglected history of the women who grew ‘vegetables for victory’.
