Gardening in the Never-Never : Women Writers and the Bush, Helen Thomson , single work criticism
Thomson describes a feminised response to the Australian landscape, an expression of the Arcadian possibilities of the bush, as distinct from the masculine 'realist' response. She also notes women writers' sense of sisterhood with Aboriginal women, expressed through a shared benign relationship with the natural world.
(p. 19-37)
Mary Fullerton: Pioneering and Feminism, Joy W. Hooton , single work criticism biography

Hooton explores Fullerton's life and works, demonstrating the influence of the bush and its pioneers on Fullerton's thought. Hooton argues that the notion of solidarity that Fullerton developed from her experience in the bush differed from the masculine 1890s ideals of the Bulletin school because of her inclusion of women. This broader notion of solidarity easily extends into the ideas of the first wave of Australian feminism, indicating the importance of Mary Fullerton's writing to an understanding of Australian culture in the first decades of the twentieth century.

Envisioning Female Sexuality in Barbara Baynton's 'Human Toll', Rosemary Moore , single work criticism
Moore examines the ways in which Human Toll explores anxieties about female sexuality, arguing that "terror arises out of a woman's perception of the horror that surrounds female sexuality as a social construction and a projection of male fears". Moore demonstrates that, in Human Toll, Baynton endows Ursula with the capacity to escape the cycle of a "woman's trajectory". Given the power to recognise inhibiting stereotypes, Ursula takes control of her quest for self-knowledge and her desire to be a writer.
