Welcome to The Australian Feminists...
We are a group of passionate women and men working towards social change through education. We use workshops, documentary films and social media to educate the public about the numerous ways women are still discriminated against in Western society and around the world.
Got a Burning Feminist Question?
We are excited to announce a new interactive project for Blogger that YOU can be a part of!
Over the years, TSF has received countless messages, DMs and emails from young people trying to navigate difficult situations whilst retaining their feminist ideals and integrity. In previous years, our Instagram admins did their best to reply, and sometimes published the questions and responses (with permission) as educational posts.
In 2019, we’ve decided to refine this process through the creation of an advice column by long-time admin and volunteer, Kate!
About the Column:
Do you have a question about what to do or say in an awkward situation? How about how to deal with friends and family who don’t understand where you’re coming from? Do you have someone in your life who just doesn’t understand your feminism, no matter how you try to explain it? Do you have any ethical questions that are eating away at you? Then #AskAuntieKate!
For more information about the project and how to participate, please go to:
We hope to hear from you soon!
In May 2019, The Sydney Feminists had the privilege of giving a talk to a group of 12 students from Texas A&M International University. Founders Tessa Barratt and Joe Salemi discussed the origin of the organization, what the political landscape looks like in Sydney and covered some of the key issues feminist activists are championing in 2019. The students were exceptionally bright, curious and engaged and asked some brilliant questions! It was such a pleasure to open up to a forum discussion at the end and hear what they had to say. We love to give talks and presentations of this nature, especially to traveling students, so if your University/school would like us to give a talk on the work we (and many other feminists) do, please get in touch!
Our writers have been hard at work producing high-quality reviews, articles, op-eds and information pieces. Some have also produced series, such as Women in Film History and Women in STEM. All articles are published on our Blogger (with more of an academic focus) and Tumblr (with more of a pop culture focus).
To make finding specific works easier, our website manager, Linzy, has produced an archive of all the written works of Blogger and ranked them under different categories. She will be updating this archive across the year, so if you're looking for a specific topic or series, be sure to check back regularly to see new additions.
Kati Erzsébet has returned as the head admin of our popular Instagram platform. For informative and funny posts, as well as access to her Ask Auntie Kate advice column, please head over to Instagram now!
