Rebecca Shaw: Legacy Books

In this minisode from FWF 2018 Sydney, Bec Shaw talks about the books that shaped her feminism and her writing.

From female friendships in The Trixie Belden series to queer relationships in Tipping The Velvet to discovering feminist comedy, Bec discusses how “books kickstarted a life of prioritising women and thinking about equality.” She also sees online feminist writing as an important site of learning and community: “The internet has given us access to voices we would have otherwise missed. It has given us series feminist discourse but also feminist comedy, something I find necessary and sustaining.”
