Women are destroying the joint - Christine Nixon in Melbourne, Clover Moore here. Honestly. The twitterverse exploded with passionate, disbelieving and hilarious responses, and w here in Destroying the Joint women reply to this comment and the broader issues of sexism and misogyny in our culture. With Jane Caro editing, this entertaining and thought-provoking collection consists of essays, analysis, memoir, fiction and more.
