    In her lifetime, some authorities classed Jessie Street as a troublemaker. These days, she is a respected figure and acknowledged activist for the rights of women. In 1945, she helped establish the UN's Commission on the Status of Women and became Australia's representative. In 1989, marking the centenary of her birth, this library was established to focus on women's literary and cultural heritage. The collection includes books, magazines, journals, archival material, newspaper clippings, and audio, video and oral history tapes.
