Since colonization the pub has played a quintessential part in Australian life, both socially and economically. In this book, a mixture of labour history and cultural history, the author explores the central figure of the barmaid, who once played the combined roles of mate, confidante, surrogate-mother and sexual object. This book traces the sexualization of the industry and the feminist and temperance debates about it.

It covers womens demands for equal pay and drinking rights in the post-war period and concludes in the mid-1990s with the labour market changes and drinking customs which saw the end of the old pub culture and the place of barmaids within it.
