Bringing together 21 remarkable women, The Modern Woman's Anthology 2010 reveals a range of insights through personal stories based around what it means to be a woman in today's world. This unique publication chronicles the trials and joys of being a modern woman, from singing opera in Russia to early morning family chaos, from cycling across Africa to growing up with Germaine Greer's philosophies, from old wives' tales to running a school in Tanzania. Contributing writers include Olympian Cathy Freeman, doctor and media commentator Dr Cindy Pan, award-winning children's author Libby Hathorn, and Chairman and Executive Director of Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation Dr Gene Sherman. Each story reveals something about their commonality: womanhood. All proceeds will be donated to the Black Dog Institute, a not-for-profit, educational, research, clinical and community-oriented facility offering specialist expertise in mental health.
