Apparently we’re going to a demo. I’ve seen pictures of demos in the newspapers of course–people marching down the street, holding banners and bits of cardboard with signs on them... But this demo sounded like it was just for women. I didn’t get it.

Jan Packard starts a diary because she is bored, but she suddenly finds there is a lot happening around her. Everyone seems to be changing and doing things she never expected.

Her mum is attending consciousness-raising meetings, her best friend has gone boy-crazy, she discovers her older brother was a draft dodger during the Vietnam war and there are protests and politics everywhere. From the brilliant My Australian Story series.

Genre: Historical Fiction Learning Area: History Reading Level: Upper Primary, Middle Primary School Year: Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 Ages: 9 to 12 Page Count: 160
