We’re max relaxed after a long weekend down the beach, and ready to dissect the week with you. An editorial on women’s pasts and how they are weaponised against us in the halls of power, resonates and has us reflecting on our digital footprints. Meanwhile the reckoning continues, all of it; the discussions, the anger, and importantly the change. A shift in the definition of the Sex Discrimination act has us cheering and yelling “whut?!” at the same time. That reckoning extends to Neighbours, which has been called out for it’s non-inclusive environment and alleged racism. And it’s a bumper fashun update from the Bang Fam at large. Does this mean that nature is healing? Speaking of fashion, we pay tribute to an icon, as Carla Zampatti sadly passes away. And we’re banging on about great reads, and listens, and hoping you follow us down the rabbit hole.
