September 17, 2020

“Today’s woman wants a teammate over a knight, and with good reason…”

The First Move published by Murdoch Books 

Emily Brooks, author of The First Move (a book about the awakening of the young dating feminist) puts her case for a woman figuring out her own wants and needs before taking a leap into the world of love, or, equally as I see it in the context of unpausing, into the world of work. Clever, inspiring, practical: think before you leap.

Formerly, she was the editor of Future Women, an organisation dedicated to the advancement of women, and an associate editor at The Huffington Post Australia.
