The Great Feminist Denial with Monica Dux, Anne Manne and Catherine Deveny
Readings Hawthorn — Woiworung Country, 701 Glenferrie Rd, Hawthorn, Victoria, 3122
The Great Feminist Denial by Monica Dux and Zora Simic puts an ailing feminist past to rest, and proposes a way forward that offers young women of today a new way of calling themselves feminists. Feminism, if not dead, is at least seriously ill. It is now common to hear women declare themselves ‘Not Feminists’, whereas in the 1970s it was taken as given that any thinking woman would be proud to wear that label. What the hell happened?
In The Great Feminist Denial panel discussion this will be discussed and dare we say, debated. Join in!
