SKU: 02328-M181

Our sense of identity as Australians is, in large part, the product of what nationalistic stories we tell ourselves, but this process of myth-making favours the bushranger, the successful bloke and the battler – leading to a highly masculinised notion of Australianness. Karen Pickering examines the place of women in our biopic canon in light of the forthcoming Julia Gillard telemovie.
