Zelda D' Aprano
A SPINIFEX FEMINIST CLASSIC
Our house was a single-fronted cottage in the slum area of Carlton. There were no distinctive features to differentiate it from most of the small cottages ... Zelda D'Aprano, a working-class woman at the forefront of the Women's Liberation Movement in Australia, shows in her autobiography the same raw spirit she evidenced when chaining herself to the Commonwealth Building in Melbourne to protest unequal pay on 21 October 1969. The life of a remarkable woman who often battled alone for what women today take for granted.

'Her accounts of poverty and gender inequity and her own political, sexual and intellectual maturation are presented with blinding honesty and an indefatigable sense of humour. In a genuine expression of sisterhood experiences, ideas and practical accounts are expressed through an intimate disclosure of both her body and mind. Drawing on her own experience, D’Aprano brings to life the difficult issues that face all women.'Asheley Jones, Pandora
