This article explores Marjorie Caw’s (née Hubbe) transition from her professional work and active citizenship as a young, single, kindergarten teacher in Adelaide to her multi-faceted married life on a farm near Kojonup, Western Australia during the interwar period. Besides engaging fully in domestic work, Caw taught her children at home and maintained her commitments to nation building by leading the Kojonup Country Women’s Association. Issues of gender, class and race relations mediated her domestic work and relationships with her husband and children, successive white maids and the Noongar people on the farm as well as her civic commitments in the interwar years.
