Not Now, Not Ever: Ten years on from the misogyny speech by Julia Gillard – on sale in the UK
February 14 @ 8:00 am - April 14 @ 5:00 pm
Described as a ‘barn-burning piece of Australian feminist history in the making’, Not Now, Not Ever by Australia’s former prime minister Julia Gillard is now available in paperback in the UK. The book looks at where we are now following Gillard’s famous “misogyny speech” in Parliament House on 9 October 2012, attempting to energise and motivate women who need to stare down sexism and misogyny in their own lives.
Contributors include Dame Mary Beard, Jess Hill, Jennifer Palmieri, Katharine Murphy and members of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership. Gillard explores the history and culture of misogyny, tools in the patriarchy’s toolbox, intersectionality, and gender and misogyny in the media and politics.
FANZA arts patron Kathy Lette looks at how the speech has gained a new life on TikTok, as well as inspiring other tributes and hand-made products, and we hear recollections from Wayne Swan, Anne Summers, Cate Blanchett, Brittany Higgins and others of where they were and how they first encountered the speech.
Available from all good book stores in the UK.
