Writing Politics, Writing Feminism: Evelyn Araluen, Clementine Ford, Jenna Price and Louise Taylor

Listen in to FWF16: Writing Politics, Writing Feminism.

Australian politics is a known boys’ club, but feminist writers have been challenging this culture for decades. Three feminist writers with varied experiences and perspectives of writing about politics lead this panel. What does a feminist lens bring to political writing and what are some of the politics of feminism itself?
