              In an age that mashes internet porn with Tinder and arranged marriage, in an age in which everything (sexuality, gender, consent) seems fluid, what does the landscape of love look like, really? And how are the seismic jolts in the ways we negotiate sex and romance affecting women...? In the third book in Samantha Trenoweth's series of essays by contemporary women, contributors ask whether the Tinderverse has killed romance; are women, who are increasingly powerful in all sorts of areas of their lives, more or less empowered in their personal relationships than they were a decade ago; and do women actually have more choices or fewer? Better than Sex assembles impressions of the contemporary love landscape, from outspoken, witty, provocative writers, including Roxane Gay, Zan Rowe, Emily Maguire, Jamila Rizvi, Lucy Le Masurier, Susan Chenery, Rosie Waterland, Fiona McGregor, Rachel Hills, Zoe Norton Lodge, Van Badham and Ann Friedman.

              In Australia violence against women is a silent epidemic. By the age of 15 almost 20% of women have experienced sexual violence and more than one in three have experienced physical violence. One woman dies every week due to domestic violence in Australia. Violence against women i...s the leading contributor to death, disability and illness in women aged 15 to 44. Violence against women has been grabbing headlines all year: girls have been mutilated; girlfriends have been shot in bathrooms and thrown from balconies; wives have been burned; and mothers and kids have been left homeless by closing refuges. In this collection, some of Australia's best women writers stare straight into the face of the monster and plot its defeat. Violence against women is a serious issue, but Fury is not a dry, academic tome. From personal perspectives to political perspectives to indigenous perspectives, this is a book of engaging, impassioned and intelligent narratives, perfect for a general readership. Anne Summers writes about the early days of the women's refuge movement. Van Badham puts the ball back in men's court and asks what they can do. Mandy Sayer gives a moving account of her childhood, spent fleeing from a violent stepfather. Natasha Stott Despoja writes about family violence from a political perspective. Meena Kandasamy discusses violence against women in India. Clem Bastow urges us to stop tweeting and do something about misogyny. Other contributors include Susan Chenery, Louise Taylor, Margo Kingston, Fahma Mohamed, Max Sharam, Wendy Bacon, Susan Ardill and Helen Razer.

              Fury: Women write about sex, power and violence (EPUB ebook)

              By Trenoweth, Samantha

              In Fury: Women write about sex, power and violence, 16 exceptional writers, led by editor Samantha Trenoweth, put violence against women into the spotlight. Their perspectives range from the searingly personal to the positively political. What emerges is a fascinating explorati...on of the power dynamic between men and women, and some creative strategies to address the inequalities built into it. Mandy Sayer gives a moving account of her childhood spent fleeing a violent stepfather; Anne Summers revisits the anarchic early days of the women's refuge movement; Van Badham and Susan Chenery give accounts of violence in suburban Australia and pastoral Tuscany that suggest even the smartest women are vulnerable to assault; Indian poet and novelist Meena Kandasamy addresses rape culture on the subcontinent; and inspiring young activist Fahma Mohamed writes of her crusade against female genital mutilation. In recent times, we have seen girlfriends shot in their bathrooms and thrown from balconies; mothers and kids turned away from underfunded refuges; women raped on Indian buses, American campuses, and in Australian homes. It's time we talked about it. Fury explores the intersection between culture, gender and social change through voices that are passionate, insightful and, above all, empowering.

              A Room At The Top (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Ducker, Heath; Trenoweth, Samantha

              'It is unusual to read a story that is so confrontingly real, and yet so profoundly uplifting' Prime Minister Kevin Rudd Heath Ducker grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. He couldn't even see the tracks from where he lived, in dilapidated government housing, with shattered wi...ndows and holes in the floor that let the weeds climb through. He lived with his emotionally fragile, single mother and nine siblings, conceived with half a dozen different fathers, none of whom ever moved in. Most days, there was nothing to eat but breakfast cereal. Just when it seemed things couldn't get any worse, soon after Heath's twelfth birthday, he was sexually abused by the father of his only real friend. However, Heath was determined, from the outset, that he would not let his circumstances beat him. As a teenager, he was so committed to passing his final exams that he lugged his books up a mulberry tree and onto the roof of his house to study in the only quiet spot he could find. As a result of extraordinary courage and resilience, Heath Ducker is a lawyer with a passionate commitment to improving the lot of underprivileged kids. He lobbies politicians on their behalf, gives his weekends over to voluntary work at camps for teenagers in trouble and he leads treks for young people along the notorious Kokoda Track in the highlands of New Guinea. In 2008 the then Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon Kevin Rudd MP, presented him with ADC's Leadership Award 2008, presented to only 26 people from across Australia. When Heath appeared on ABC television's AUSTRALIAN STORY in 2006, he provided inspiration for thousands of viewers. His life story has continued to inspire as one of the most frequently viewed episodes on the ABC TV website. Now, in A Room at the Top, Heath Ducker, for the first time, tells his story in his own words.
