    The author writes 'about some of the Aboriginal women who have battled against prejudice and discrimination, against apathy of Christian people, and against disregard by governments; and who have, by corage and determination, made an honorable place for themselves in the ommunity. The W.C.T.U. of Australia accords to them the respect and commendation which are their due.' (Source: page 6)
