Review: Not Now, Not Ever edited by Julia Gillard
This was an interesting read. Like many women, I was disgusted with the way that Australia's first female Prime Minister was treated in Parliament, particularly by one man--at whom the very speech was directed. I felt the speech was entirely heartfelt and appropriate. As far as the book goes, as I said, an interesting read. I like to think that we've made some progress since then--as some of the writers suggest--but Jess Hill's chapter makes it clear that we still have some way to go. Misogyny may not be violence against women, but it certainly creates an environment where that violence can occur.
