You’d better run, you’d better take cover…

From suffrage to second-wave feminism, from Greer to Ford, from Vida Goldstein – the “darling” of the cause to Gillard’s misogyny speech, meet Ellen van Neerven and hear how First Nation’s women’s roles were overlooked from Marcia Langton, we explore why Penny Wong seems to have more of a voice outside a political party and learn Edith Cowan said, “I belong to no party in this house…I shall be responsible only to my constituents”.

There is a LOT of goodness in our notes for this episode: do check the links and have a read through.

You’ll also hear us say “what a f**king legend!” quite a bit. This is a tiny slice of feminism in Australia.

At Shrews Untamed we believe in crediting the work of the people who’ve helped bolster our argument or broaden our discussion. We thank the following humans for their contribution from the bottom of our cold, dead shrewy hearts.
