Product Description

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.

About the Author


Emily Maguire is the author of the novels Smoke in the Room (2009), The Gospel According to Luke (2006) and the international bestseller Taming the Beast (2004). Emily has been twice highly commended for the Kathleen Mitchell Award for writers under 30 and was a finalist for the 2006 Dylan Thomas Prize. In 2010 she was named as a Sydney Morning Herald Young Novelist of the Year. She is the recipient of the 2011 NSW Writer’s Fellowship.

Her non-fiction book Princesses and Pornstars: Sex + Power + Identity (2008) is an examination of how the treatment of young women as fragile and in need of protection can be as objectifying and damaging to them as pornography and raunch culture. A Young Adult version of this book titled Your Skirt’s Too Short: Sex, Power, Choice was published in 2010.

Emily’s articles and essays on sex, feminism, culture and literature have been published widely including in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, The Observer and The Age. In 2007, the Women’s Electoral Lobby awarded her the Edna Ryan Award (Media Category) for her writing about women’s issues.

Emily has served as Writer in Residence at the Djerassi Artists Program in Northern California (2009), as an Asialink Literature Resident in Vietnam (2008) and as a Tasmanian Writers’ Centre resident in Hobart (2006). She has an MA in literature and has worked as a mentor to young and emerging writers.
