On our best behaviour


Elise Loehnen looks at the ways in which women have been penned by the fake morality of the sins, and how we find ourselves complicit in denying ourselves a full existence for fear of crossing some sort of line – of wanting too much, being too much, falsely equating ‘self-control’ with goodness. In this process of self-betrayal, she finds, we have also betrayed each other. A bold and daring denouncement of that which has been used to condemn ‘badly behaving’ women, ‘On Our Best Behaviour’ asks: what does it mean to be ‘good’, particularly as a woman, in today’s world?
