CHERCHEZ LA FEMME: FEMINISM AND DATING, APRIL 2015

clfsept-10Pat Benatar said love was a battlefield and she didn’t even have to deal with Tinder and OkCupid! Join some of Melbourne’s coolest, smartest and most irreverent feminist commentators as we take a trip through the minefield of dating while feminist. Is it hard to find other feminists to go out with? Is there a baseline of feminist understanding you need for even a hookup? Are there really “feminist fuckers” out there who target us because getting laid by a feminist is like catching the rarest Pokemon of them all?

Maybe you’re in the dating world yourself? Or maybe you have kids about to dive in? Or you might even just be curious to hear from the front lines of what your friends and loved ones are getting up to, in a new reality where meeting people might be more streamlined than ever before, but it isn’t always easy!

All this and more with your host, Karen Pickering, and a stunning lineup of cool babes with tales to tell and lols to spare:

Michelle Li – award-winning writer, editor, feminist

Fury – performance poet, zinester, activist, feminist

Amy Gray – columnist, commentator, presenter, feminist

So get your girl gang together and come on down to our shiny new venue, where the drinks are plentiful, the food is delicious and all the staff are outrageously good-looking.
