FWF2016

Our sold out Networking Day was held on Friday 26 August 2016 at the iconic Queen Victoria Women’s Centre.

150 feminists came together for a day of programming with 14 sessions on feminist publishing, building feminist community, the politics of personal writing, and writing for kids with a feminist lens, featuring 41 feminist writers and commentators from across the country including Clare Wright, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Susan Hawthorne, Evelyn Araluen Corr, Fiona Wright, Monica Dux, Emily Maguire and Lian Low.

The audience drew from a diverse range of backgrounds, including an impressive age spread ranging from high school students to women in their 70s. The intergenerational conversations that took place were a really special feature of the Networking Day and were reflected in the hugely popular public session (as part of of co-curated MWF sessions) Feminism: then and now with Anne Summers, Yassmin Abdel-Magied and Sophie Cunningham.
