Dr Yves Rees, Sydney Review of Books
'Distant Sisters [is a] meticulous account of Australasian women's international activism in support of women's suffrage between 1880 and 1914'.
Professor Marilyn Lake, Australian Book Review
'Distant Sisters is a seamlessly and beautifully written, as well as rigorously researched, account of the intersecting ambitions, aspirations, endeavours, successes and failures of political women connected by virtue of their place in the Australasian region. It is a masterful recount of the 'messy stories' both underpinning and arising out of Australasian suffrage success.'
Sharon Crozier-De Rosa, Women's History Review
'Meticulously researched ... this careful study allows us to see both the excitement of women who wished to be the first to achieve the franchise and the disappointments that followed. Through his thorough engagement with a range of sources Keating has illustrated the importance of cross-border connections'.
