This anthology of some of Australia’s most talented female writers relate their experiences of rebellion and defiance as they challenge familial and societal expectations to find their place in the world. Good girls hold their tongues, obey their elders and wait for marriage to determine their destiny. But these rebellious daughters challenge conventions and stereotypes to forge their identities and take control of their lives. The SJWF is honoured to host the Sydney book launch of Rebellious Daughters with the book’s editors and two contributors.
