Ladies' Lunch for Last Woman Hanged
Warm thanks to the generous Robin Amadio of The Wentworth Courier for attending the lunch for 40 women at Chiswick, to celebrate the publication of Last Woman Hanged.
Whether Louisa Collins was guilty or not, hanging is barbaric, and to hang a woman when no woman was even allowed to vote on capital punishment is a travesty of justice.
Mia Freedman was MC, and Leigh Sales gave the speech. The theme naturally, was how far we've come.
As for Matt Moran - and what he's doing at an all-female lunch - well, he owns the restaurant, so we could hardly turn him away!!
