Megan’s Favourite Germaine Greer Moment
My favourite moment with GG was at The F Word event earlier this year (also at the Sydney Opera House).
Eva Cox stood up to ask Germaine a question, and I can’t remember what the question was, but I recognised Eva’s voice straight away. Germaine sat there for a moment on stage, and then she raised her fist in a feminist salute. She had a nostalgic, joyous, serious look on her face. She said “Hello Eva,” and paused, and the crowd cheered and cheered.
Both of these women drive me mad from time to time, but they’re both heroes, and that moment was quite something.
