The Australian Book Designers Association (ABDA) has announced the winners of the 2020 Australian Book Design Awards in an online ceremony on Thursday 20 August.
Please join us in congratulating Debra Billson on winning the ABDA Best Designed Non-Fiction Book for her work on #MeToo: Stories from the Australian Movement.
In #MeToo a collection thirty-five contributors share their own #MeToo stories, analysis and commentary to survey the movement in an Australian context. Since October 2017, when the hashtag #MeToo went viral we’ve watched controversy erupt around Geoffrey Rush, Germaine Greer and Junot Díaz. We’ve talked about tracking the movement back via Helen Garner, Rosie Batty and Hannah Gadsby. We’ve discussed #NotAllMen, toxic masculinity and trolls. We’ve seen the #MeToo movement evolve and start to accuse itself – has it gone too far? Is it enough? What does it mean in this country? This collection resists victimhood. It resists silence. It insists on change.
