Feminist Writers Festival: Clementine Ford - What Next for #MeToo?

Late last year, the #MeToo movement went viral, providing a historic public platform for women and non-binary people to speak out about their experiences of sexual harassment and assault. One of them was Clementine Ford, who first felt shame and self-doubt when beginning to write on the topic, but has since published on her own #MeToo moments, analysing them with honesty and clarity. Join Clementine in conversation to review the movement's past, present and future, and the many ways women are silenced, questioned, cross-examined and dismissed. In partnership with the 2018 Feminist Writers Festival.

Tickets: $10
