— Review of Teacher for Justice : Lucy Woodcock's Transnational Life Heather Goodall , Helen Randerson , Devleena Ghosh , 2019 single work biography

'In the world of transnational scholarship, that sometimes obscures the contributions of important individuals, it is pleasing to see the revitalisation of historical biography, which recovers in other ways the life stories of consequential Australians, including women whose work was mainly amongst the marginalised. The contributions of these women would otherwise remain unnoticed because their transformational influence was mostly unrecognised in their lifetimes; their often vibrant personal stories could not be fully told in a still largely provincial thinking Australia, with all of its white, hetero-normative and masculine-driven stereotyping.'
