Abstract

In 1993, Mary Morris, in her compilation of women’s travel writing, Maiden Voyages, observed that women, while travelling, are always vulnerable to sexual violence: ‘the fear of rape, for example, whether crossing the Sahara, or just crossing a city street at night’ (Morris 1993: xvii). Twenty-five years later, the reality remains. In June 2018, three weeks before Sally Piper launched her new novel, The Geography of Friendship, Melbourne comedian Eurydice Dixon was raped and murdered in Carlton North while walking home from a Melbourne bar.
