in 1975 Anne Summers set out to describe the way in which Australia's history and culture had limited women's participation in our own society. The result was a devastating and totally original view of Australia that had a profound effect on a generation of women, a book that stands beside the best of feminist literature and Australian history. Two decades after Damned Whores and God's Police was first published, Anne Summers has returned to her classic study, adding two substantial new chapters to the core of her book. Here she assesses what we have achieved and takes an impassioned and heartfelt look at the modern women's movement. in telling the story of the creation of that movement, Anne Summers provides a call to action for the generation born since Damned Whores and God's Police first appeared.

Lest anyone fear for my moral decay, I'm interested in reading this because it was quoted in a Bruce C. Hafen speech to the world Congress on families. He cited it as an example of the moral force of women. Read full review
