About this product
- DescriptionBewitched and Bedevilled: Women Write the Gillard Years is a provocative analysis of Australian attitudes towards the nation's first female Prime Minister. A selection of Australia's most influential, entertaining and controversial female voices examine the country's reaction to Julia Gillard and debate the successes and failures of her prime ministership. Bewitched and Bedevilled investigates Gillard's position at the receiving end of a barrage of sexism and misogyny; questions why she was so vehemently attacked; and discusses the role this played in her ultimate undoing. Bewitched and Bedevilled also uncovers the impacts (reinvigorating, divisive, disturbing) of the Gillard years on feminism, on the Australian community and on our image abroad. Packed with wit, ire and incisive comment, this is a compelling anthology for all those who were intrigued or outraged during Julia Gillard's tenure as Prime Minister. Contributors include: Tanya Plibersek, Jane Caro, Eva Cox, Clementine Ford, Kathy Lette, Chloe Hooper, Helen Razer, Shakira Hussein, Emily Maguire, Tracey Spicer, Ruth Hessey, Catharine Lumby, Helen Pringle, Carol Johnson, Claire Harvey and speeches from Anne Summers and Julia Gillard.
