A Focus on Feminism: Intersectionality Now!

TALK | August Inc.
The landscape of social justice and feminism is ever changing, however, what seems to stay constant is the fixation on issues pertaining to a privileged few. So, let’s f*ck feminism up!

This panel discussion will dissect the current landscape of feminism, unpack intersectionality, and womanism as well as explore how we can now move past feminism 101.

We won't come up with all the answers, but, we hope to start a conversation that is a catalyst for genuine solidarity.

TALK | August Inc.

With the lead up to International Women’s Day, we need to talk about moving beyond superficial allyship. So get cozy with us for a panel discussion with four women of colour that is all about just that! 

We will be deep diving into what solidarity is, how best to use our voices and privileges, discussing antiblack racism and hearing how we as settlers and descendants of colonisers in so-called Australia can be sincere, safe and considerate allies to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We won't come up with all the answers, but, we hope to start a conversation that is a catalyst for genuine solidarity.
