Reading women’s stories and magnifying women’s voices is paramount to #ChooseToChallenge.

  • On Hope - Daisy Jeffrey

    As extreme weather becomes the norm; scientists agree that our climate is changing. But it seems too many of our leaders are not listening to the science and are failing to act. In On Hope, one of the lead organisers of the Australian Climate strike, 17-year-old Daisy Jeffrey shows how ordinary people are fighting back and demanding we address climate change to help save our planet.

  • Song of the Crocodile - Nardi Simpson

    Nardi Simpson is a Yuwaalaraay writer, musician, composer, and educator from North West NSW freshwater plains. A founding member of Indigenous folk duo Stiff Gins, Nardi has been performing nationally and internationally for 20 years. Her debut novel, Song of the Crocodile was a 2018 winner of a black&write! writing fellowship. Full of music, Yuwaalaraay language and exquisite description, Song of the Crocodile is a lament to choose and change, and the unyielding land that sustains us all, if only we could listen to it.

  • Witness - Louise Milligan

    A masterful and deeply troubling expose, Witness is the culmination of almost five years' work for award-winning investigative journalist Louise Milligan. Charting the experiences of those who have the courage to come forward and face their abusers in high-profile child abuse and sexual assault cases, Milligan was profoundly shocked by what she found.

  • On Quiet - Nikki Gemmell

    Internationally bestselling author Nikki Gemmell writes on the power of quiet in today's shouty world. Quiet comes as a shock in these troubled times. Quietism means 'devotional contemplation and abandonment of the will ... a calm acceptance of things as they are'. Gemmell makes the case for why quiet is steadily gaining ground in this noisy age: Why we need it now more than ever. How to glean quiet, hold on to it, and work within it.

  • The Lonely Century - Noreena Hertz

    Combining a decade of research with first-hand reporting, Noreena Hertz takes us from a 'how to communicate in real life' class for smartphone-addicted university students to bouncy castles at Belgian far-right gatherings, from 'renting a friend' and paying for cuddles in the U.S. to nursing home residents knitting bonnets for their robot caregivers in Japan.
