The Tidiest Revolution: Regulative Feminist Autobiography and the De-Facement of the Australian Women’s Movement
Discusses the representation of feminist activism in some contemporary women’s autobiographies, focussing on Susan Ryan’s Catching the Waves (1999), Wendy McCarthy’s Don’t Fence Me In (2000), and Anne Summer’s Ducks on the Pond (1999). The article concludes with a fictocritical piece of experimental autobiography, a ‘brief, episodic, fragmentary autograph of soundtracks and wordtracks’.
