Pandora English is no ordinary small-town orphan. When she's invited to live with her mysterious great aunt Celia in New York City, she seizes the opportunity to escape her stifling hometown, break from her tragic past and make it as a writer.Things, however, are not what she is expecting. For starters, her great aunt's gothic mansion is in a mist-wreathed Manhattan suburb that doesn't appear on maps.
A short, accessible and practical handbook for women on speaking out safely and confidently. Worldwide, less than one out of every four people we hear or read about in the media is female; in Australia men outnumber women in parliament by more than three to one; and women are even more underrepresented in leadership roles and peace negotiations. If women and girls remain voiceless, half of humanity's experiences, perspectives and possible solutions to world problems go unheard.
Tara Moss has worn many labels in her time, including author, model, gold-digger, commentator, inspiration, dumb blonde, feminist, and mother, among many others.
Now, in her first work of nonfiction, she blends memoir and social analysis to examine the common fictions about women.
