Stepping into a First Nations women-led feminist future.
Hosted by Larissa Behrendt with Chelsea Watego, Alison Whittaker and Amy McQuire
Presented at All About Women, 13 March 2022, 11:30am AEST
Indigenous women, white feminism and power; colonial violence and self-determination - what are the obstacles and pathways to a new future led by First Nations women?
This vital two-part event will be a masterclass in First Nations world views today.
Distinguished Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson will discuss her seminal work, Talkin’ Up to the White Woman: Indigenous Women and Feminism, originally published over 20 years ago. Never out of print, this essential book was way ahead of its time, demonstrating how white feminists benefit from colonisation and the unjust structural relationship between white society and Indigenous society.
Chelsea Watego, Amy McQuire and Alison Whittaker represent a new generation of strong, visionary voices. This panel - led by Larissa Behrendt - explores what living as a First Nations woman is like when every day is yet ‘Another Day in the Colony’. Speaking up to the patriarchy, talkin’ up to the white woman and challenging colonial institutions, this will be a powerful, unmissable session that sets the agenda for feminism's Anti-racist future in Australia.
