My Tidda, My Sister by Marlee Silva and Rachael Sarra (Illustrator)
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and society has existed on this continent for millennia. It's a culture that manifests itself as the ultimate example of resilience, strength and beauty. It’s also a culture that has consistently been led by its women.
My Tidda, My Sister shares the experiences of many Indigenous women and girls, brought together by author and host of the Tiddas 4 Tiddas podcast, Marlee Silva. The voices of First Nations’ women that Marlee weaves through the book provide a rebuttal to the idea that 'you can’t be what you can’t see'. For non-Indigenous women, it demonstrates the diversity of what success can look like and offers an insight into the lives of their Indigenous sisters and peers.
Featuring colourful artwork by artist Rachael Sarra, this book is a celebration of the Indigenous female experience through truth-telling. Some stories are heart-warming, while others shine a light on the terrible realities for many Australian Indigenous women, both in the past and in the present. But what they all share is the ability to inspire and empower, creating a sisterhood for all Australian women.
"When I created Tell Her, it was important to me that I showcased ALL go-getting women and their stories. I have followed Rachael Sarra for quite some time now and was very excited when she teamed up with Marlee Silva to create this beautiful book that offers insight for non-Indigenous women like me. A must-read for anyone that wants to learn more about the lives of Australian Indigenous go-getting women (and that should be everyone!)." - Carly, Chief Book Officer of Tell Her.
