"This mother totally changed Australia. It's time we all learned her name" - Kidspot

"ABC doco shows just how much we forget about our local feminist icons" - Junkee

"Paper Trails, an ABC documentary on Anne Deveson, has got me thinking about the legacies of women’s contributions ... One can think of many memorialised in bronze or stone, with far less impressive achievements."

- The Guardian
