Kath Williams was a trade unionist, and a communist, before taking on the mantle of feminist after World War II. With a trade unionist ex-husband who was elected to Federal Politics opposing her left wing campaigns, Kath emerged as a feisty and quietly determined woman. Her campaign of conviction was the major force behind the achievement of equal pay for women. This important social history documents the struggles of so many, for the rights of so many more. This type of history is invaluable in enabling understanding and appreciation of the long tradition of fighting for justice in Australia. Zelda D'Aprano's impressive biography will enable Kath Williams to take her place as one of Australia’s most important activists for women’s rights.
