by Carrie Rudzinski and Olivia Hall

Women are frequently told they are too emotional - too hysterical - to be taken seriously, to be leaders of countries and companies, to be believed when pointing at their own hurt. Hysterical confronts these myths with poems that celebrate women's achievements and survival and acknowledges how much our society - men, women, and non-binary - needs emotion to connect with one another.

Carrie Rudzinski is an award-winning poet, published author and teaching artist and Olivia Hall is a celebrated poet and performer with a Masters in Gender Studies. They successfully toured New Zealand in 2019 with their show How We Survive, performing to sold out audiences in Auckland and Wellington.
