At FWF2020, we take a deep dive into Australia’s culture of violence, the politics of health, intersections of the law, ecofeminism and a whole lot more. There’s no goop, but plenty of guts, grit and gregarious conversation.

FWF2020 comprises two streams: ThinkIns and FWFtalks, plus a bonus end-of-day chat show about all things craftivism.

FWF ThinkIns tackle four big questions for contemporary feminism, each teased out by two formidable feminist thinkers. Read their work via exclusive, specially-commissioned essays sent out before the event, then hear them in conversation with an expert interviewer for the online, live-captioned and Auslan-interpreted ThinkIn panels at FWF2020 on Saturday 14 November. Bring your own questions and critical thinking to take a deep dive into the biggest questions of the day.

FWFtalks is our free podcast conversation series, covering even more big topics as part of the FWF2020 experience. Each podcast will feature three great minds to dissect the issues of the day. FWFtalks will be coming to you in the lead up to our festival day, Saturday 14 November.

FWF2020 is made possible through the financial support of Creative Victoria, Queen Victoria Women’s Centre and Besen Family Foundation.
