Sheer Madness, Sex, Lies and Politics, Book Launch

 

Sheer Madness at Parliament House  Story MiSociety – Photos: MiSociety & Bill Ranken 30 March 2010
Parliament House Sydney was an obvious choice of venue for Prue MacSween to launch Jan Murray’s book ‘Sheer Madness, Sex, Lies and Politics’. 

Jan Murray was somewhat overwhelmed by both Prue’s introduction and the support she received from her friends, including fellow cast members from television’s original ‘Beauty and The Beast’, at the launch of her memoir. 

‘Sheer Madness’ is Jan’s story from chooks at the bottom of the garden to ‘pollies’ in the halls and everything else in between.  The book will strike a particular cord with any female who grew up during the era when the opportunities offered to the female gender were limited to say the least.  ‘Sheer Madness’ will also make interesting reading for the young women of today to reinforce that’s it’s not that long ago that girls were educated to just be wives and mothers and not much more.

It was ballsy gals like Jan Murray and many others who would not accept their ‘place’ that helped to promote the rights of females in Australia.

‘Sheer Madness: Sex, Lies and Politics’ – Jan Murray, A Memoir is published by Mira Books
