A Bit of Feminism – What is Feminism in 2023?

Members gathered at Marcellina’s Restaurant on March 30 for a relaxed evening chat about ‘A bit of feminism’.

It was great to welcome some new faces to the discussion and also enjoy the company and input from our outgoing IEU Federal Secretary Christine Cooper.

Members shared their understanding and experience of feminism followed by a rigorous discussion of concepts of gender in the workplace, patriarchy and intersectionality.

It was good to be challenged by how we see feminism today compared to what it looked like in past decades and why feminism in action is still as relevant today.
