Indigenous Feminism Then and Now Sun 11 Sep, 3pm
Two decades ago, Bidjara and Birri Gubba Juru historian and activist Jackie Huggins (Sister Girl) and Goenpul academic and Australia’s first Indigenous Distinguished Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson (Talkin’ Up to the White Woman) released books that challenged – and changed – the face of feminism in Australia. Hear these pivotal authors reflect on the recent re-issuing of their culture-shifting work, being on the forefront of decolonisation, and why their works remain the most important books on feminism in so-called Australia today. They speak with Amangu Yamatji academic and researcher Crystal McKinnon.
