'An extremely important anthology' Tracey Spicer

In October 2017, the hashtag MeToo went viral.

Since then we've watched controversy erupt around Geoffrey Rush, Germaine Greer and Junot Díaz. We've talked about tracking the movement back via Helen Garner, Rosie Batty and Hannah Gadsby. We've discussed #NotAllMen, toxic masculinity and trolls. We've seen the #MeToo movement ev/> ...more

Kris McCracken
A worthwhile collection from Australian women on the antecedents, necessity and impact of the #MeToo movement. A mix of essays, poetry, comic and prose is an eclectic way to explore what is tricky and unfamiliar terrain, particularly in those areas that give primacy to inter-sectional lived experience of difference.

As a whole though, I got a lot from it. The inter-generational aspect was enlightening, and I appreciated hearing the voice of a host of women that are often overlooked. Of particula

What is this about?: This book is a collection of essays from women, and a man, in Australia who experienced sexual abuse, harassment at work and at home.

What else is this about?: The stories are written by diverse women, in diverse fields and yet their experiences are much the same.

This is a brilliantly curated selection of pieces, from a commendable variety of voices. Together, they provide what can only be described as wake-up call to those unaware of the sexism inherent in society. It's shocking, sad, moving, angry, fierce, poetic and beautiful. All men should read this to grasp some idea of what women go through, and have always gone through. The quartet of editors should be extremely proud of what they have put together, it's a hugely impressive piece of work.

#metoo is a conversation that we never wanted to have, but had to. This is a thought provoking and fascinating series of essays, comics, poems, and other miscellanea that have been collected on the subject. With heartfelt and personal messages to instructions on how to approach the topic of sexual assault, this was a good read. The only thing lacking was perhaps some more pieces, and in some cases, slightly more developed ones. An important read for anyone looking to understand the implications ...more
