Women and Black Saturday

Women and Environmental Justice BEATING THE FLAMES Escaping Surviving Black Saturday.

I am honoured that Women’s Health Goulburn Valley have used a line from my poem ‘Gossamer skin’ as the title of their report into relationships and domestic violence after Black Saturday.  The e-book Beating the Flames documents women’s stories of the fires, demonstrating that women played an active role in protecting their families, property and community – often alone. I await the report ‘The landscape of my soul: Relationships after Black Saturday’ with interest.They are inviting submissions of stories, art and poetry for inclusion on their website.
