  • One Roof Women 77 City Road Southbank, VIC, 3006 Australia (map)
 Ever wondered how activists got started? Or how to actually create change for good in your life in little and big ways?  2017 was a big year for women and the world, and 2018 looks to be even bigger. This International Women’s Day we’re celebrating by bringing together a panel of five incredible women to talk about how they’re pressing for progress.  Moderated by Roj Amedi, we’ll chat to Aretha Brown, Georgie Stone, Atong Atem and Jessica Walton to learn about what it means to be an activist and feminist in today’s world and how you can create change even in the smallest of ways in your life.  The panel will touch upon the challenges we’re up against, the conversations we should be having and how to practise self-care and self-love in the face of injustice and discrimination.  This event is all about bringing women together to learn, listen, talk and support one another in this fight for equality. You’ll have a chance to ask all your questions, be a part of our community and reflect on how you can make a difference – yes, you.  The team will also be celebrating their first birthday by launching the second season of her words – our web series sharing the stories of those who identify as women. Enjoy a sneak preview of their  newest episode.  Drinks + nibbles provided as well as a delicious goodie bag for all attendees.
