    Women must quit their
    jobs when they marry.
    They are barred from
    trade unions and universities.
    Their husbands can
    legally rape them.
    And they are not
    allowed to vote.


    This could be the reality in Australia today — if it weren’t
    for the many women who, over more than a century of activism, fought for
    change.


    In this passionate and timely account, Emily Maguire charts
    a course through the history of Australian feminism — from the First Wave to the
    Fourth, from suffragists to Riot Grrrls, from equal pay to #metoo. Along the
    way, she pays tribute to those who’ve spoken up and taken action in the face of
    ridicule, dismissal and violence.


    This Is What a
    Feminist Looks Like
    shows us how we got to where we are today — and reminds
    us that some battles must be fought over and over again.
