The Melbourne Feminist Collective will hold the Feminist Futures Conference this May 28 – 29, Melbourne’s largest feminist conference in over a decade.

The conference aims to reclaim ‘feminism’ as a positive term, and to embrace the diversity of backgrounds and ideologies within the feminist movement, promoting robust debate and constructive criticism.

Feminist Futures will feature a number of high-profile speakers, including radical lesbian feminist Sheila Jeffreys, commentator and ethicist Leslie Cannold and Kathleen Maltzahn, who ran as a Greens candidate in the 2010 Victorian state election.

Speakers will feature in themed panel discussions, and conference participants will have a chance to ask questions following each panel.

There will also be workshops exploring specific feminist issues.

Anyone interested in running a workshop, performing or otherwise contributing to the conference should email [email protected]
