Wo­man’s place

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - Front Page -

I have just read “Hear me roar” (Oct 27-28) and would like to amend the view that most women in the ’60s and ’70s felt their role as a home­maker was not ful­fill­ing. As a wife and mother to three chil­dren I have al­ways felt my role as a stay-at-home mum was the most im­por­tant job any­one could have. Suzanne Heg­gie Her­vey Bay, Qld

From 1962-64, stu­dents at Mar­rickville Girls’ Ju­nior High School in Syd­ney were in awe of “Miss Greer”, this tall, bra­less, highly in­tel­li­gent fe­male who taught Latin, art his­tory and English, and ran a mean Shake­speare class. Even then her mes­sage was, “Get an ed­u­ca­tion, make your­self in­de­pen­dent. The rest will be just ic­ing on the cake.” In­spir­ing wo­man, still. Dail Car­son
