If Only She Had Spoken Like A Lady

Janeen Webb was recently guest presenter for Women’s History Month, hosted by Gillian Polack.  Janeen’s article, If Only She Had Spoken Like A Lady, is a response to the media storm that erupted when outgoing Australian of the Year, Grace Tame, refused to smile for the cameras. Janeen uses the history of feminist sf to take a hard look at the gender inequality that still persists in socially embedded expectations of “proper” behaviour for women in the public arena.
