An anthology of Australian female memoir Lee co-edited with Maria Katsonis.
Good daughters hold their tongues, obey their elders and let their families determine their destiny. Rebellious Daughters are just the opposite.
In Rebellious Daughters, some of Australia’s most talented female writers share intimate and touching stories of rebellion and independence as they defy the expectations of parents and society to find their place in the world.
Powerful, funny and poignant, these stories explore everything from getting caught in seedy nightclubs to lifelong family conflicts and marrying too young. Beautifully written, profoundly honest and always relatable, every story is a unique retelling that celebrates the rebellious daughter within us all.
Not every woman is a mother, grandmother, aunty or sister – but all women are daughters.
