Barbara Curthoys was an important figure in the history of Communism, feminism, the peace movement and the campaign for indigenous rights in Australia. An activist in the middle of the twentieth century, she was 'one of that small band of women who fearlessly campaigned for racial and social equality and world peace at a time when it was politically risky to do so'.
