Event description
We are delighted to present Clementine Ford on Toxic Masculinity. Join us during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

About this Event

Clementine Ford is a Melbourne based writer, speaker and feminist thinker. She is the author of two books, Fight Like A Girl and Boys will be Boys, and has been a columnist for Fairfax’s Daily Life and a regular contributor to The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald.

Clementine Ford’s writing explores issues of gender inequality and pop culture. Her ability to use both humour and distilled fury to lay bare ongoing issues affecting women has earned her a huge and loyal readership amongst both women and men. Clementine’s work has radically challenged the issues of men’s violence against women, rape culture and gender warfare in Australia, while her comedic take on casual sexism and entertainment has earned her a reputation as an accomplished satirist.

Clementine’s work has also appeared in the Guardian, Cosmopolitan, Girlfriend, CLEO, Sunday Life and The Big Issue. Clementine has been a guest on ABC’s Q and A, Channel Nine Mornings and is a frequent contributor to Channel Ten’s The Project.

'Everyone's afraid that their daughters might be hurt. No one seems to be scared that their sons might be the ones to do it ... This book ... is the culmination of many years of writing about power, abuse, privilege, male entitlement and rape culture. After all that, here's what I've learned: we should be f*cking terrified.' (Boys will be Boys)

This event is delivered by students from Chisholm's Diploma of Community Services as an assessment related to our unit Promote Community Awareness of Domestic Violence.

Please join us for morning tea at 10:15am with speaker to begin at 11am.

This is a free event, however $5 donation will be invited at the door to support local Family Violence organisations.
