This workshop will discuss the issues inherent in the construct of the ‘ideal activist’ and how gendered roles manifest within activist communities that are trying to fight against forms of oppression, and espouse a progressive world view. Informed by the article ‘Doing enough of the ‘right’ thing: the gendered dimension of the ‘ideal activist’ identity and its negative emotional consequences’ by Emma Craddock who looks at how gendered roles were appearing in British anti-austerity movements. This is meant to be a reflective look at how activist communities can unintentionally preserve societal forms of oppression within their structures and how activists can deconstruct these models within their own groups through holding themselves and others to account within activist communities.

We would like to acknowledge that this event was organised on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri Peoples of the Kulin Nation. We would like to pay our respects to elders past present and emerging of this land on the lands from which participants will be calling in from. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
