‘An extremely important anthology’ Tracey Spicer
In October 2017, the hashtag MeToo went viral.
Since then we’ve watched controversy erupt around Geoffrey Rush, Germaine Greer and Junot Díaz. We’ve talked about tracking the movement back via Helen Garner, Rosie Batty and Hannah Gadsby. We’ve discussed #NotAllMen, toxic masculinity and trolls. We’ve seen the #MeToo movement evolve and start to accuse itself – has it gone too far? Is it enough? What does it mean in this country?
And still, women are not safe from daily, casual sexual harassment and violence.
In this collection thirty-five contributors share their own #MeToo stories, analysis and commentary to survey the movement in an Australian context.
This collection resists victimhood. It resists silence. It insists on change.

From the Publisher
Christie Nieman, Maggie Scott, Natalie Kon-Yu and Miriam Sved are a Melbourne-based feminist group of writers, editors and academics. They have published two previous anthologies on the female experience, <i>Mothers &amp; Others</i> and <i>Just Between Us.</i>
About the Author
Christie Nieman is best known for her work as an author, as an essayist, and as one of the editors in the feminist collective responsible for the anthologies Just Between Us, Mothers and Others, and #MeToo: Stories from the Australian Movement.
Her debut novel, As Stars Fall, a CBCA Notable Book, was described by one reviewer as ‘Australian Gothic for young adults’. She has taught creative writing at universities and to the public, and early in her career she won an Asialink residency to be a Research Fellow at Nanzan University in Japan, where she immersed herself in Kaidan stories, traditional Japanese folk tales of the strange and supernatural.
Christie’s essays concern themselves with women, storytelling, evolution, the environment, and the way that human exceptionalism plays out in fiction and in our lives, and the impact it makes on our planet. She has minor qualifications in environmental science and major qualifications in literature and ecocriticism. Find out more about Christie’s books, essays, and short fiction at christienieman.com.
Christie is a parent and a librarian, and she lives and works on Dja Dja Wurrung country. Where We Begin, published by Pan Macmillan in September, is her second novel.
