FWF 2020

SAVE THE DATE! Our next festival will be held 13-15 November 2020 at Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Women’s Centre.

With a focus on our key thematic areas of violence against women, intersectionality and intergenerational feminism, and financial equity, we’ll be pushing past ‘feminism 101’ and connecting writers, thinkers, readers, journalists and academics to have the conversations that lead to change.

We’ll be taking speaker submissions later this year. Sign up to our newsletter and social channels for all the news and updates.
