This year, in a surge of global outrage at the election of Donald Trump, millions of women filled the streets in the largest single-day demonstrations in history. In the literary world, too, women are making noise. Jan Fran talks to important voices on the front line of feminist writing. Yassmin Abdel-Magied (Yassmin’s Story), Clementine Ford (Fight Like A Girl) and Tracey Spicer (The Good Girl Stripped Bare) discuss taking action and writing for change.

This event will be Closed Captioned. The National Relay Service is available to assist with phone bookings. Call Roslyn Packer Theatre Box Office on (02) 9250 1988 or boxoffice@sydneytheatre.com.au to request access tickets.
