Jane Caro
University of Queensland Press, 2013 - Australia - 295 pages
A fabulously provocative collection by women ready to destroy the joint Early in September 2012, commentator Alan Jones, responding to a comment by Prime Minister Julia Gillard, said: 'She Gillard] said that we know societies only reach their full potential if women are politically participating. Women are destroying the joint - Christine Nixon in Melbourne, Clover Moore here. Honestly.' The twitterverse exploded with passionate, disbelieving and hilarious responses, and now here in Destroying the Joint women reply to this comment and the broader issues of sexism and misogyny in our culture. With Jane Caro editing, this entertaining and thought-provoking collection consists of essays, analysis, memoir, fiction and more, from: Penny Wong Christine Milne Tara Moss Corinne Grant Clementine Ford Carmen Lawrence Wendy Harmer Catherine Deveny Steph Bowe Emily Maguire Leslie Cannold Stella Young Monica Dux Catherine Fox Nina Funnell Susan Johnson Jennifer Mills Michelle Law Melissa Lucashenko Krissy Kneen Paula McDonald Abby Cathcart Dannielle Miller Jenna Price Lily Edelstein Jill Tomlison Yvette Vignando
