FWF2020 Ecofeminism: Lidia Thorpe, Alice Robinson, Inga Simpson

We’re born into injustice, we’re born into the struggle… we’ve always had to fight… so that’s nothing new to us, having to fight this climate injustice that’s going on… —Lidia Thorpe

As climate change increasingly occupies writers and readers alike, how are we reading and writing for change? How are feminists, in particular, using the written word to connect to mother earth and call for resistance? What does feminism centered around land and country look like?

There’s a discomfort for non-Indigenous Australians about our landscapes… about this country that we live in and on, because of this history. —Inga Simpson
