Mystifying Melbourne: “Daughters of Melbourne, A guide to the invisible statues of Melbourne."
An unfortunate yet crucial fact about Melbourne is that we have only one (and a half) Melbourne women represented in statue form in this fine city. Those are alarming numbers. Author and illustrator Maree Coote aims to bring more visibility to the women of note who helped shape and create Melbourne. Her book “Daughters of Melbourne, A guide to the invisible statues of Melbourne” is out now. Women are often erased from history and do not get the recognition they deserve. Aisha & Maree discuss how to increase visibility, the process of writing such a book, and so much more. The feminist flag is waving proudly!
