This International Womenʻs Day event is run in collaboration by the UMSU Indigenous, People of Colour, and Womenʻs Departments. As the speaker, Celeste Liddle will focus on Indigeneity and Feminism exploring topics such as decolonisation, intersectionality and International Womenʻs Day.

We acknowledge that this event is held on the land of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri tribes of the Kulin Nations, and that sovereignty for this land was never ceded. We’d like to pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We’d also like acknowledge that sexism has disproportionately affected Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and non binary people, and that they should always be at the forefront of our feminist activism.

Come visit the Women’s Department stall this Summerfest! We’ve got lots of goodies to give away and come have a chat with us about what the Women’s Department can do for you! We’ve got:

  • Our annual tote bags with inclusions (2020 brochure, 2019 edition of Judy’s Punch)
  • DIY bath bombs to give away!

Sign our ‘Consent is Sexy’ pledge too and help us make this campus safer for everyone on it.

The Women’s Department acknowledge that the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nations are the traditional custodians of the land upon which we will be holding this event. We acknowledge that this land was stolen and sovereignty has never been ceded. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.

Have you ever felt helpless in tackling an issue? Textbooks are too expensive, Myki fines are unreasonable, it’s impossible to find somewhere decent to live – and climate change is slowly killing us all. Whether it’s global, national or local, anger, sadness and hopelessness are the feelings that spark real change in the world.

And that’s where the Education Public department can help.

Come and meet us to find out the plan for the 2019 in what’s seeming to shape up to a massive year politically, socially and surely economically.

This is what we’re at uni for – to find friends, find our cause, find our community – and, of course, to have a sick time.
