Lindy West in conversation with Clementine Ford
Melbourne Athenaeum, 188 Collins Street, Melbourne
We regret to inform everyone that Lindy West has made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel her event in Melbourne on 9 March due to personal reasons.
We’d like to apologise to all her loyal readers who were so excited about seeing her next week.
All ticket sales will be refunded and anyone with concerns can contact our events team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
To acknowledge International Women’s Day we are over the moon to bring you Lindy West and Clementine Ford in conversation about misogyny, propaganda and the power of women.
From the moment powerful men started falling to the #MeToo movement, the lamentations began: this is feminism gone too far, this is injustice, this is a witch hunt. In West’s latest book, The Witches Are Coming, the firebrand author of the New York Times bestselling memoir and now critically acclaimed Hulu TV series Shrill, turns that refrain on its head.
You think this is a witch hunt? Fine. You’ve got one.
This event is supported by the Victorian Women’s Trust.
