The Monthly Magazine June 2024 Issue



The June issue of The Monthly is full of smart, urgent essays that speak to the current moment: Laura Tingle on the failures of civility in public discourse; Katherine Wilson on a story about intimidation, surveillance and standover tactics in the fight over NSW’s forests; and for our cover story, Kate Manne writes about the future of misogyny in the aftermath of the Bondi Junction attack.

Assistant Minister for Competition, Charities, Treasury and Employment Andrew Leigh highlights the workplace trend that is limiting job mobility and productivity alike, Fiona Kelly McGregor visits the Gaza vigil outside Anthony Albanese’s Marrickville electorate office, and Grace Tame reviews Scott Morrison’s book: “It’s less swan song of a statesman, more stepping stone of a salesman,” she writes, “a gaslighter’s guide to avoiding accountability through God.”

And elsewhere in the issue, in Arts and Letters, Quentin Sprague considers the work of painter Brent Harris, Alison Croggon laments the state of independent theatre in Australia, and Michael Nolan, Kate Jinx, Anna Krien and Sean O’Beirne all offer reviews.
