Between 1870 and 1940, tens of thousands of Australian women were drawn to London - their imperial metropolis and the centre of the publishing, art, theatrical, and educational worlds. Even more Australian women than men made their pilgrimage "home", seeking opportunities beyond those avaliable to them in the Australian colonies or dominion. Through this lens, Woollacott explores connections between whiteness, colonial status, gender, and modernity.
