Time Out says

A new feminist ideas festival will bring Monica Lewinsky, Zadie Smith and more to Melbourne

The Wheeler Centre is hosting the inaugural Broadside feminist ideas festival for two days this November. The festival is presenting a powerfully feminist program with a line-up of international and local speakers touching on modern feminism, intersectionality, writing and more. 

Headlining Broadside will be activist and writer Monica Lewinsky, English author Zadie Smith (White Teeth, Swing Time) and Australian writer Helen Garner (Monkey Grip, This House of Grief). Mona Eltahawy, Tressie McMillan Cottom, Ariel Levy, Courtney Barnett and Aileen Moreton-Robinson will also appear in panel discussions and one-on-one conversations. 

The festival will host a special Saturday night gala event titled Things My Mother Never Told Me, which will include readings, performances, songs and reflection. 

Weekend passes are available for the weekend, as are day passes and up late tickets. Tickets are available from September 16. 

Broadside will hit Melbourne Town Hall on November 9 and 10. See the full line-up of events here.
