FWF18 Sydney

The Feminist Writers Festival was thrilled to come to Sydney for the first time from 1 to 3 November 2018, in collaboration with UTS Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion.

Over three days, featuring 13 sessions and over 40 speakers, we brought together some of Australia’s leading feminist thinkers to explore ‘rewriting the story’ through a range of panels and workshops about activism, fiction and the intersectional lives of women.

FWF Sydney aimed to spark conversation, connection and action. We were proud to feature writers, activists and feminists such as Larissa Behrendt, Brooke Boney, Eva Cox, Anna Funder, Erin Gough, Ruby Hamad, Anita Heiss, Zoya Patel, Jenna Price, Shirleene Robinson, Siv Parker, Rebecca Shaw, Tracey Spicer, Anne Summers, Lucy Watson, Alison Whittaker and Fiona Wright.
