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.
