WWJD: What Would Jenny Do?

CW: discussion of rape, sexual violence & victim blaming. 

When Brittney Higgins publicly acknowledged not only that she was raped but that the Liberal Government knew and covered it up, the country went into shock. And by the county we mean, a lot of cis men were vocally shocked.

In this episode we discuss our infinite anger at a culture that seemingly refuses to hear victim survivors, the culture that perpetuates this behavior and the government that allows rape culture to thrive.

45% of the reports of sexual violence are flat out ignored. We need to foster a system that not only supports and empowers victim survivors but holds abusers and rapists accountable. Creating new laws to push for change will not work, especially when the laws that exist don’t protect us from rape. We must dismantle this capitalist, white supremist, patriarchal and colonial system – otherwise we are simply asking men for stuff.

Minister 4 Women 4 Eva

Minister 4 Women 4 Eva

February 10, 2021

Have you ever wondered what the Minister for Women does? Did you also have the fever dream that Tony Abbott was the Minister for Women? Well! Fasten your seatbelt because we’re taking you on a 35 year ride through the history of the Office for Women.

In this episode we bring you a run down of what each of our Ministers for Women have done as the representative for women’s issues/status/interests.

Leah also does a profile on Aileen Moreton-Robertson as part of our new intro where we talk about a feminist who’s doing great work. Definitely check out her book Talkin’ Up to the White Woman (https://www.readings.com.au/products/32823550/talkin-up-to-the-white-woman-20th-anniversary-edition) and remember to use your local libraries, they take recommendations for books they should buy that aren’t in stock!

CORRECTION: We quote an article by Sara Dowse (called The Prime Minister’s Women, printed in Australian Feminist Studies in 2015) and said we didn’t quite understand what she was saying when she said “At the beginning of 1977 the branch was upgraded again and became the Office of Women’s Affairs. It looked like a promotion, and it was for me, but what it actually signified was the removal of the office at the year’s end to a new, low-ranking department of home affairs.” THEN we are shocked later to learn that the position of Minister for Women disappeared in 1977 and reappeared in 1983. Sara Dowse is literally referring to this. Apologies, we had read too much and our brains were not computing. What happened in 1977 in the shift to home affairs meant that this office no longer reported directly to the Prime Minister.

Creating Leaders feat. Chilli & Mev

Creating Leaders feat. Chilli & Mev

December 4, 2020

CW: discussions of systemic, physical & sexual violence, apologism, homophobia, transphobia and male aggression. There are some personal anecdotes which don't go into specific detail, but they may stir somethings up and if they do, feel free to step away, take care and contact 1800 RESPECT for support. 

This week Leah is joined by Chilli from 3CR, Latinx Feministas and co host of SlutWalk Melbourne's 2020 rally and Mev an organiser with SlutWalk Melbourne collective. 

We were supposed to talk about SlutWalk but we did not really get around to that, instead we spoke about the rising rates of family violence during covid, how we are raising young boys to maintain patriachial systems and how we can organise as a feminist community to overcome these obstacles. It was a pretty great chat, and hope you enjoy!
