A note of admiration for Grace Tame from SSOA's weekly emerging writer's group:
Grace, you could have simpered sweetly to the Prime Minister, genuflected cutely, even curtsied, or just said 'thank you' for being the past Australian of the Year.
But a tame woman you’re not. One sideways glance from your tiger eyes told the world what you thought.
For the strong, the tiger symbolises power, courage, confidence and leadership; for the timorous, fear and destruction.
You herald a new understanding of 2022: the Year of the “Tigress”, when women dare speak truth to power.
We hope you recover well from your recent bike accident!
