This week were joined by Subeta Vimalarajah, one of the directors and co-founders of fEMPOWER Sydney, a program of feminist high school workshops, run by university students and young feminists. fEMPOWER Sydney aims to educate young people on feminist issues, ranging from representation in the media to sexual harassment and domestic violence, and hope to inspire students to form their own collectives and take action on these issues. fEMPOWER workshops are completely volunteer-run and by donation for public schools in New South Wales.
We also had a chat to Maddie from Girls Rock Sydney, which is part of a national network of Australian rock camps, and a wider global Girls Rock! community. Girls Rock! originated in Portland, Oregon in 2001, and has since spread across the world to the UK, Japan, Finland and more. Girls Rock Sydney is holding a fundraiser on November 4 at the Factory in Marrickville, with Mere Women, Party Dozen and more, ahead of their first camp in January 2018.
We heard from Niveen Abdelatty (HipHopHoe), a Sydney-based musician and DJ and a first generation Egyptian-Australian, about cultural appropriation on our segment Thoughts That Count.
We’ll also spoke about the American classes designed for men to unlearn toxic masculinity and consent classes in Kenyan schools.
