"Books written for, and read by girls formed an important part of their culture and their perceptions of themselves as female. Women who shaped the texts, helped shape the culture. This paper will examine the construction of gender identity through this significant form of cultural transmission, stories written for girls and young women during the early twentieth century Australia. Contance Mackness's life and work will be used as an example." (Macintyre, Pam, 1999, p.119)
