How often are young women constrained by their gender? What if they had the confidence to speak (or write) up against derisive and discriminatory language?
Okay, I feel so strongly about this. I’m fiercely proud to be a part of this program. The details of my session are below. But please take a look at the program and tell me that that isn’t the most exciting line-up of speakers and workshops and panels you’ve ever seen (Clementine Ford. Emily Maguire. These women are my SUPER HEROES). I can’t wait. I want to go to everything. I want the world to change. I want YOU to find your VOICE. Please come.
Tuesday 21 June 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM
The Radical Act of Writing Women
Type: Panel | Kirsty Eagar, Emily Maguire, Fiona Wright – hosted by Bec Kavanagh
Are women’s stories for women only? Writing about women can be a radical act against the male-dominated literary canon. These three artists will each present a 5–10 minute piece that demonstrates how this is true for them. This will be followed by a short panel discussion.
