Girl Talk: one hundred years of Australian girls’ childhood. By Gwenda Beed Davey

How has life changed for girls in Australia, between 1910 and 2010?

In this book, ten Australian-born women talk about their childhood. Two world wars, the Great Depression, terrible epidemics like diphtheria and polio. Death was often not far away. But they never stopped dancing, or exploring, or playing.

Gwenda Beed Davey has drawn on her years of experience in child development and oral history to show what it was like to be a girl, in 1910, 1930, 1960, or 2010.
