Girls' Talk: Young Women Speak their H/Pallotta-Chiar/Paper/1876451025/S054-A1
In Girls' Talk young women reveal their loves, hopes, happiness and pain. Joyful, poignant and powerful accounts fill the pages; from short poems to heartfelt pleas and diary extracts.
We learn of love affairs, rejections, inspiring friends and failed relationships. We may see ourselves in their stories of overcoming obstacles and discrimination, of the complexities of family life and their quests for independence, of struggling to understand their sexuality, achieve their dreams and be accepted.
Over 150 young women contributed their work for this unique collection. Highlights include contributions from Natasha Stott-Despoja and Tammy Williams (Aboriginal Winner of the 1997 Human Rights Award), and an interview with Lisbeth Gorr (Elle McFeast). Photographs and illustrations from young women are also included.
