This is the hidden story of Australian and New Zealand women war reporters who fought for equality with their male colleagues and filed stories from the main conflicts of the twentieth century. In Australian Women War Reporters, Jeannine Baker provides a much-needed account of the pioneering women who reported from the biggest conflicts of the twentieth century. Two women covered the South African War at the turn of the century, and Louise Mack witnessed the fall of Antwerp in 1914. Others such Anne Matheson, Lorraine Stumm and Kate Webb wrote about momentous events including the rise of Nazism, the liberation of the concentration camps, the aftermath of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and the Cold War conflicts in Korea and Southeast Asia. These women carved a path for new generations of female foreign correspondents who have built upon their legacy. Jeannine Baker deftly draws out the links between the experiences of these women and the contemporary realities faced by women journalists of war, including Monica Attard and Ginny Stein, allowing us to see both in a new light.

There has been a lot happening on Australia's small screens. Neighbours turned 30. Struggle Street was accused of poverty porn. Pete evangelised Paleo. Gina got litigious. Netflix muscled in. The Bachelor spawned The Bachelorette. Peter Allen's maraccas were exhumed. The Labor Party ate itself. Anzac was an anti-climax. And so much more...Join us as we survey the Australian televisual landscape, and try to make sense of the myriad changes transforming what and how we watch. We've come a long way since Bruce Gyngell welcomed us to television in 1956. We now watch on demand and wherever we want, in our lounge rooms and on our devices. But some things stay the same. The small screen is still a place for imagining Australia, for better or for worse. Small Screens challenges and celebrates our contemporary TV worlds.

"Guns and Brooches investigates the contradictions, paradoxes, and anomalies that have arisen because army nurses have been 'in but not of' the army. They have faced discrimination as women in a men's organisation. Guns have replaced brooches as part of their uniforms as 'total war' has increasingly made a mockery of the distinction between non-combatants and combatants, a meaningless distinction for the nurses machine-gunned on Banka Island during the Second World War. Those sent to 'outpost of the empire', such as India during the First World War, have also had to cope with difficulties caused by deep-seated imperial tensions."--BOOK COVER.
