A manifesto for equality.

Pussy Monologues is a celebration of the dark art of counter-attack, generously shared by some of Australia’s smartest, funniest and most thoughtful female voices.

Every great social justice movement has started with … people sitting in a circle, telling their personal stories that they think only happen to them … and realizing that if it’s happening to all these unique people, it’s political. – Gloria Steinem

This is what #MeToo and Time’s Up have been about – that it’s not just me, it’s all of us. It’s political.

Told from the true stories of ordinary and extraordinary women, Pussy Monologues uncovers the brave, ingenious and darkly funny ways women have survived, outlasted, outwitted and outmuscled the patriarchy.

In this practical manifesto, Pussy Monologues seeks to provide an answer to “what’s next?” – to help navigate the journey to equality in a fiercely shifting landscape.

Led by award-winning documentary filmmaker and writer Victoria Midwinter Pitt (Afghanistan: Inside Australia’s War, Leaky Boat, Rampant: How a City Stopped a Plague), Pussy Monologues shares exquisite accounts by women for everyone.
