ACCIDENTAL FEMINISTS

‘A humane and important book about contemporary women’s lives, including the perilous economic
predicament of many older women, written in a way that is warm, funny and accessible.’
—ANNE MANNE


How one generation became feminist—by accident.

Women over fifty-five are of the generation that changed everything. We didn’t expect to. Or intend to.
We weren’t brought up much differently from the women who came before us, and we rarely identified as feminists, although almost all of us do now.

Accidental Feminists is our story. It explores how the world we lived in—with the pill and a regular pay cheque—transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world.
It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.

Jane Caro is an author, novelist, broadcaster, columnist, advertising writer and social commentator.
She was awarded the 2018 Walkley for Women’s Leadership.

The MOTHER-IN-LAW

From the bestselling author of The Secrets of Midwives and The Family Next Door comes a compelling new page-turner about the trickiest of relationships.

Someone once told me that you have two families in your life - the one you are born into and the one you choose. Yes, you may get to choose your partner, but you don't choose your mother-in-law. The cackling mercenaries of fate determine it all.

From the moment Lucy met Diana, she was kept at arm's length. Diana is exquisitely polite, but Lucy knows, even after marrying Oliver, that they'll never have the closeness she'd been hoping for. But who could fault Diana? She was a pillar of the community, an advocate for social justice, the matriarch of a loving family. Lucy had wanted so much to please her new mother-in-law.

That was ten years ago. Now, Diana has been found dead, leaving a suicide note. But the autopsy reveals evidence of suffocation. And everyone in the family is hiding something...


Sally Hepworth has lived around the world, spending extended periods in Singapore, the UK and Canada, where she worked in event management and human resources. She is the author of The Secrets of Midwives, The Things We Keep, The Mother's Promise and The Family Next Door.

Sally lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her husband and children.
