This Is What a Feminist Looks Like
Women must quit theirjobs when they marry.
They are barred fromtrade unions and universities.
Their husbands canlegally rape them.
And they are notallowed to vote.
This could be the reality in Australia today -- if it weren'tfor the many women who, over more than a century of activism, fought forchange.
In this passionate and timely account, Emily Maguire chartsa course through the history of Australian feminism -- from the First Wave to theFourth, from suffragists to Riot Grrrls, from equal pay to #metoo. Along theway, she pays tribute to those who've spoken up and taken action in the face ofridicule, dismissal and violence.
This Is What aFeminist Looks Like shows us how we got to where we are today -- and remindsus that some battles must be fought over and over again.
