Summary The history of McIver's Ladies Baths in Coogee--affectionately known as the Women's Pool--is eloquently told in these stories by women who have found friendship, sanctuary, and simple pleasure as they have gathered and swum there. Humorous tales of encounters at the pool sit alongside stories of sorrow and regret. There are recollections of the famed 'Thursday Married Ladies Club' and accounts of delight at the natural beauty, safety, and freedom that Australia's only ocean pool reserved for women offers. In this anthology, writers from diverse cultures reveal the role that the Women's Pool has played in their lives. From the '365ers' who brave the elements all year round to the women who seek summer sun on the rocks, a picture emerges of a space for women to be themselves.
