In Today’s People the title of this epic was, inevitably perhaps, shortened to concentrate on Sarah and Diana, but the title is really “Sarah and Diana - images of ourselves". And by that I mean that I see them literally as images of “us” as in western women, Australian women, women of the late 20th century. They are true representations of ourselves and I believe that in looking at them we can see what has happened to “us” in the last ten or fifteen years. What is happening to us now. And what we can expect to happen to us in the near future — our future. And I’d like to think — and that we should all think — about what we can and should do about it.
