Well-Behaved Women with Emily Paull
10 March @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
2021’s International Women’s Day theme is Choose To Challenge and Emily Paull’s timely debut, Well-Behaved Women, voices a chorus of characters that reveal and re-evaluate the expectations of women in Australia today—after all, well-behaved women rarely make history.
‘In Well-behaved Women Emily Paull expertly conveys the small but cumulative acts of emotional repression women endure in order to keep the peace. With great skill and poetry, Paull draws our attention to the psychological toll that such daily concessions take. These fabulous stories will make you smile and cry but most of all, will make you angry—on behalf of all these quietly suffering and “well-behaved” women we all know so well.’—Melanie Cheng, Victorian Premier’s Literary Award Winner
