2016

Join Andie Fox and co-panelists Petra Bueskens and Viv Smyth to discuss "decommodifying feminism".

Held at Queen Victoria Women's Centre Trust, 210 Lonsdale St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia on August 26th in 2016.


What happens when feminism gets too cosy with capitalism? In an era when we tend to focus on individual expression, it could be argued that feminism is seen more as an identity than as philosophical framework. Is this all bad? How do we find a path back to collective action and care? And is all ‘internet feminism’ preoccupied with personality and likability?

"Join Clementine Ford, author of Fight Like a Girl and Boys Will Be Boys, Teela Reid, a Wiradjuri and Wailwan woman, practising lawyer and a powerful advocate for the rights of Aboriginal women, and Dr Petra Bueskens, author of Modern Mothers and Women's Dual Identities to discuss feminism."

Held at The Capitol, 113 Swanston St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia on June 11th, 2019.


"The feminist movement has fundamentally re-fashioned our world. As the #MeToo movement and the backlash against it continues, it is timely to think about what kind of feminism we need. There are different voices within feminism, and different answers to the question of what still must be done to deepen and complete the feminist revolution.

Discussing these issues is a panel of three experts, featuring Clementine Ford , author of Fight Like a Girl and Boys Will Be Boys, Teela Reid , a Wiradjuri and Wailwan woman, practising lawyer and a powerful advocate for the rights of Aboriginal women, and Dr Petra Bueskens, author of Modern Mothers and Women's Dual Identities. This event was moderated by La Trobe University’s, Dr Clare Wright , author of the Stella Prize-winning, The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka."
