THE achievements of women from the Chelsea area are celebrated in a new book.
Dorothy Meadows and her daughter Linda have compiled the 195-page history, Women of Chelsea and District, which shares the experiences of 29 women from the late 1880s to now.
An 18-month project for Chelsea and District Historical Society, the book includes stories from MP Jenny Lindell, a CSIRO scientist, housewives and businesswomen.
Women of Chelsea and District will sell for $15 at Chelsea Library and the Court House Museum from November 19.
