Feminism from a first nations perspective

Since time immemorial, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have looked after human, spiritual and ecological wellbeing. Many First Nations women's activism - that might now be labelled under the umbrella term 'feminism' - is in fact a continuation of a long history of matriarchs, an ancient line of women and gender diverse peoples who embody kinship and moral responsibility to community and country.

Join us for a multi-generational panel to look at the movements Blak women have mothered and led, alongside fights that could be considered feminist issues - like equal pay and justice, violence and coercive control, leadership and movement building - that may challenge your understandings when viewed through a First Nations lens. This essential discussion will cover truth-telling in a time of state-sanctioned violence, and what that means for all of us today.
