Brumby Innes: Introduction to the 2018 edition

Maryrose Casey

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript


It is disturbing to read Bumby Innes in the context of the 'Me Too' movement that seeks to bring silenced stories forward about sexual abuse and exploitation of women in situations where they are denied power. Despite all the changes over the past century some things have not gone beyond superficial changes. Katharine Susannah Prichard (1883-1969) wrote Brumby innes in 1927 - 91 years ago - foregrounding the sexual abuse and exploitation of women in contexts where their vulnerability and accepted social practices gave them no protection.
