What do German-Jewish painter Charlotte Salomon, revolutionary socialist Rosa Luxemburg and Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe have in common? According to academic and author Jacqueline Rose, they are women in ‘dark times’ with the courage to bring the unspeakable to light. She talks to ABC RN’s Sarah Kanowski about her visionary book Women in Dark Times, which ranges across the last century and into today’s reality, arguing vigorously that the work of feminism is far from done.
