Shout Out to the Girls


A Celebration of Awesome Australian Women

What a beautiful, inspiring book and such a surprise of delight when I learnt that I had been featured inside as one of 50 Aussie women who are receiving a shout out! The stories of women from so many walks of life and what they have achieved is breathtaking.

In particular a big shout out from me to Cat MacInnes who illustrated my picture, I just love it so much! You’ll also find a wide range of Aussie female illustrators used throughout the book.

Here’s a little blurb from publisher Penguin Books Australia

Let's hear it for the Australian women who have shaped our history and are expanding our future!

From Cathy Freeman to Turia Pitt, Edith Cowan to Julia Gillard, Mum Shirl to Vali Myers, plus rally car drivers, molecular biologists and more, this book is a celebration of women in all fields, from all walks of life, and from Australia’s past and present.

Brought to life by colourful illustrations from female artists, Shout Out to the Girls is the ultimate inspirational read for young and old.
