Cara David: A Leading Woman in Australian Education.
Kyle, Noeline J.
Journal of Educational Administration, v31 n4 p80-99 1993
In broad context of patriarchal relations, female leaders' absence from historical texts accords with sexual division of labor within society and gendered nature of teaching. Cara David, educationist, social reformer, and political activist in early twentieth-century Australia, is better known as the clever, pretty wife of a renown geologist. Article shows how an "ordinary" teacher exerted considerable leadership prowess. (MLH)
