Expert Biddulph's school talks

The ‘Raising Girls’ talk

provides information on

how to raise your daughter

to be strong and free in a

world that tries to ‘box-in’

females. Girls’ mental health

issues will also be addressed

and practical, powerful and

moving stories will be shared.

the Girls

Criticised for the lack of

books promoting positive

female role models for

young readers, it is as if the

industry has over-corrected

and we now have a deluge

of ‘girl’ books.

But that’s not a bad

thing. The runaway success

of Good Night Stories for

Rebel Girls has meant

more women are being

written about and their

achievements recognised.

Just in time for

International Women’s Day,

50 Australian women will

be celebrated in Shout Out

to the Girls. From Cathy

Freeman to Julia Gillard

this book is a celebration of

women in all fields, from all

walks of life, and from past

and present.

Beachside Bookshop on

Thursday 8 March to get

10% off a copy, and help

shine the spotlight on our

homegrown achievers. –
