Tracey Spicer’s The Good Girl Stripped Bare is a ‘full-frontal femoir’ by one of Australia’s best-loved journalists. Tracey’s frank and funny book follows her trajectory: from young ‘bogan’, to beloved television anchor, to being sacked after having a baby. That’s when Tracey shed her ‘good girl’ attitude and sued the network for pregnancy discrimination. Tracey attacks the structural barriers facing women in the workplace and encourages women to speak up. She joins Sarrah Le Marquand in a candid discussion.
