CHERCHEZ LA FEMME: FEMINISM AND THE STATE ELECTION

ABORTION RALLY MELBOURNEThere’s actually a lot on the line for women at this state election, though if you’re anything like me you barely know the names of anyone at Spring St, beyond a handful of leaders and irritants. So much important policy and legislation is determined at the state level! It doesn’t do to bury our heads in the sand, or wait for something better to happen.

So join me in a discussion with some of our state’s best and most brilliant activists and thinkers, leaders in their fields, and full of inspiring energy to get this job done and make Victoria better, especially for women.

Esther Anatolitis – Director of Regional Arts Victoria, advocate, writer, co-curator of Architecture+Philosophy, and feminist

Rachel Ball – Director of Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, gender equality and anti-violence activist, and feminist.

Luke Hilakari – Secretary of Victorian Trades Hall Council, former lead organiser at United Voice and ministerial advisor, and feminist.

This one is gonna be a real barnburner! I can feel it. And these three will be able to share so much about the current moves afoot to shore up womens rights in our state, as well as new battles taking shape. Let’s get informed and activated before this election!
