On Wednesday March 8, I am giving a talk for International Women’s Day at the University of New South Wales, after which I will be in conversation about global feminism with Deputy Leader of the Australian Greens Senator Mehreen Faruqi.
This free event will be at The Roundhouse, which is located at UNSW Sydney's Kensington Campus.
On Sunday March 12, I will be speaking at two events at the Sydney Opera House’s All About Women Festival.
First up, a panel which I curated and will be moderating, and which represents FEMINIST GIANT going global! Santilla Chingaipe, Nayuka Gorrie, and Celeste Liddle will join me for the FEMINIST GIANT EVENT: Who is Feminism For?
Right after the FEMINIST GIANT event, I’ll be speaking on a panel examining The War on Women, with Fatima Bhutto, Chelsea Watego and Karen Iles, moderated by Sam Mostyn, and curated by Jane Caro.
