This event is non-autonomous and is open to all students!

Changing. Unprecedented. Uncertain. Chaotic. Bewildering. Fucked. When trying to capture the essence of 2020, it’s quite difficult. Because when so much change happens so rapidly, people’s lives get impacted in extremely different ways. In a sense, that’s what ties 2020 together, this incoherence. These historic events we’re experiencing are messy, but we often know that final accounts of historic events are too neat and leave people out. That’s why in this year’s edition of Judy’s Punch we want to get the stories of people who get left out of history. As we are faced with the opportunity to invent a new future, we have the responsibility to ensure the present reflects your present. Whatever it may be.

The Women’s Department acknowledges that the 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.

Despite being progressive spaces – activist spaces can be exclusionary to women and non-binary people. This workshop is a collaboration between the Education Public and Women’s Departments and will look at the history of women and non-binary people in activism. This workshop will also be followed up by a Feminist Action Collective, which will look at upskilling women and non-binary people in activism.

When: 30th of September 4 PM
Where: Zoom

Please note that transphobia, racism, ableism, classism, fatphobia and misogyny are not acceptable in this space, as well as any other form of discrimination not listed.

We acknowledge that this event is held on stolen lands, 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.

For those who missed out the first time… we are running a second session! However, there will be only fifteen spots available to improve the delivery of the workshop.

It’s Not A Compliment is a grassroots organization fighting for the rights of all individuals to enjoy public spaces free of the fear of harassment. Their vision is to create a world where vulnerable communities no longer have to place limitations on their behaviors in order to feel safe when out in public. We believe in a society where street harassment is recognized as a form of harm in and of itself – not simply a precursor to other forms of violence – where all individuals know what street harassment looks like, how to call it out and how to safely intervene to stop or prevent it.

This workshop is being run in collaboration with the UMSU Womenʻs Department and Itʻs Not a Compliment. Tickets are free, all you need to do is register using the link below:
