Maybanke Anderson

Our first interview looks at poet Maybanke Anderson, played by actress, folk-singer and social activist Christine Venner-Westaway. Maybanke was an outstanding Australian suffragist. The mother of seven children, she saw poetry and song as natural tools for education, which was her great passion.
