April Edition Round-Up

18 / 04 / 2013

G’day Sheilas readers and welcome to our April edition. Lots to read in this month’s edition, including our two stand-out feature pieces – Deanne Carson looks at the recent apology on forced adoptions, while Monica Dux provides us with a riveting and insightful excerpt from her new book on pregnancy and motherhood.

Also this month:

– Judy Horacek has a cheeky take on the successful attributes of public life,

– Bree Turner looks at the history of funny women in Culture Club

– Anoop Nair provides this month’s ‘First Person‘ column, on his experience migrating to Australia

– Hannah Gadsby is our ‘Bonza Sheila‘, just in time for the end of the comedy festival

– and yours truly looks at the eulogising of public figures, from the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin to Baroness Margaret Thatcher, in this month’s Polly Ticks

Also check out Keeping it Reel for a beautiful image from Pippa Dodds of dancer Anna Seymour.

Thanks for reading and contributing. For a Sneak Peak for the next edition, see here.
