CHERCHEZ LA FEMME: FEMINISM AND PORN VOL II, JULY 2015

July 14, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Belleville Melbourne,
Globe Alley
Melbourne, Victoria 3000 Australia

100% completely sold out! For as long as humans have existed they've been pretty into seeing depictions of other humans having sex. Whether you call this pornography, erotica, or adult entertainment, you might've noticed it's undergone huge changes recently in terms of availability, content and access. Rather than having a discussion about the validity of porn and whether it should exist, I thought we could talk about the fact that it's ubiquitous, homogenous and mostly monotonous. But as ever, feminists…

35 Johnston Street
Collingwood, Victoria 3066 Australia

We've all been to at least one so I thought it was about time we talked about Feminism and Birth! The politics of how people come into the world are complex and powerful (and include many other factors besides labour) but there is a moment when every one of us goes from unborn to born and how we see this process has a huge impact on many women. Here in Australia it's only recently that childbirth moved from the home…

CHERCHEZ LA FEMME: FEMINISM AND THE LEFT

September 1, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Melba Spiegeltent,
35 Johnston Street
Collingwood, Victoria 3066 Australia
+ Google Map

Women have always been absolutely crucial to the struggles of the Left and continue to form the backbone of many campaigns for social justice, workers' rights and income equality. There is no question that the women of the Left have fought and won, not only for themselves but for many members of marginalised groups. Feminist movements have not only been successful in advocating for women; feminists meaningfully participate in a broad spectrum of left-wing organising and consciousness-raising. But many of…

CHERCHEZ LA FEMME: FEMINISM AND VIOLENCE

October 6, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Melba Spiegeltent,
35 Johnston Street
Collingwood, Victoria 3066 Australia
+ Google Map

The public conversation around violence against women is more candid than ever before and appears to have a real momentum. Of course, feminist activists have spent years forcing this issue into the mainstream media and asking the hard questions about toxic masculinity and the resulting harm experienced by women (and children). We know that social movements, like feminism, are the most effective agents in bringing about lasting and broad-based changes toward a more progressive society. No community should accept the…

The topic is Girls (no, not the TV show, though it might crop up) and I’ve assembled a kick-arse panel to talk us through some of the big issues swirling around being a girl, raising girl feminists, how we view girlhood, girls and pop culture, and how girls all over the world are at the centre of solutions to the biggest problems of our time. Whew! That’s a lot to cover but we’ll be guided by these incredible feminist thinkers:…

35 Johnston Street
Collingwood, Victoria 3066 Australia
+ Google Map

If you read about them in the mainstream media you'll know that selfies are the end of civilisation as we know it, especially if women and girls are taking them. But we've always found ways to subvert the male gaze and represent ourselves as we want to be seen, and the rise of the selfie has happened at a nexus of culture, technology, politics and art. So whether you think selfies narcissistic and vain or a powerful tool for self-knowledge…
