I have to add, that after watching The Project on Sunday night and Lisa Wilkinson's interview with Kate and Rozanne Lilley, I think these women are truly amazing and I admire them immensely. They simply told their story of a disfunctional upbringing by their mother, Dorothy Hewett. Kate Lilley read a poem which was very heartfelt and poignant about her underage sexual abuse. Her new book of poetry is called Tilt by Vagabond Press.

Kate Lilley read her poem Party Favour on the program. Here's a short excerpt.

I'll tell my mother and she'll say
she asked him he said I was into it
from then on I know it's pointless
she's not on my side
From Party Favour
