"Bad" Feminism vs "Factual" Feminism

  • Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre: Plenary 2 1 Convention Centre Place South Wharf, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)

Two intellectuals, from two very different ends of the spectrum, igniting conversation about one important topic. This is not a feat, this is a sobering response to the differences within a social movement. Whilst feminism has made enormous strides towards the equality and empowerment of women, like any revolution, it is going through a rite of passage wherein strands of “feminism” and their identifiers are diverging more than they are converging.

This talk will feature Roxanne Gray and Christina Hoff Sommer. Roxanne gray is an author and cultural critic whose writing is unmatched and widely revered. Her work garners international acclaim for its reflective, no-holds-barred exploration of feminism and social criticism. Christina is a libertarian feminist, who suggests that the main political role of feminism is to ensure the right against coercive interference is not infringed. She argues that modern feminist thought often contains an "irrational hostility to men".
