Broadside: A World of Difference – Decolonising Feminism

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

9 Nov 2019

Broadside is the new feminist ideas festival from the Wheeler Centre. Over the weekend of 9 and 10 November at Melbourne Town Hall, Broadside will present two days of unabashedly feminist programming, spotlighting a remarkable line-up of international and local speakers, and delivering a powerfully feminist agenda.

A World of Difference – Decolonising Feminism

Nearly 20 years ago, Aileen Moreton-Robinson’s pioneering work Talkin’ Up to the White Woman took a sledgehammer to the idea of a unified sisterhood serving the common good of all women. It was Australia’s first ever analysis of feminism from an Indigenous woman’s standpoint. So, how far have we come?

It is a problem faced by women everywhere: against a backdrop of racism and colonial privilege, unexamined whiteness and systemic oppression, a dominant representation of feminism has prevailed. How do you un-whitewash feminism?

Hosted by Jamila Rizvi.
