Synopsis

Focussing on individuals such as Nancy Wake Christina Stead Stella Bowen Jessie Couvreur (Tasma) and Daisy White the diverse worlds of art war education sexuality and politics are explored against a culturally rich French backdrop. A Parisian finishing school; the Belle Epoque; the decimated landscapes of the Somme; the decadent Left Bank studios and cafes of the 1920s; the Depression of the 1930s; German occupied France- these narratives tell us much about the experiences of the women writing as they do about identity and Australia's response to key moments in French history.
