Thanks and get involved!

Hi all,

Thank you so much for joining us at F: The Conference, Sydney's First Feminist Conference in Ten Years!
It was a roaring success, over 500 people met to discuss feminism over the weekend of April 10th-11th.
If you put your contact details down, we will be in touch shortly with things we are doing that we hope you'll be involved in!
When we first started out, we envisaged F as a way to re-ignite the Sydney Feminist movement.
Here are some campaigns and active feminist collectives running at the moment that members of the F collective are involved in:
All welcome!

Get involved with the ASU’s Equal Pay Campaign 
Come to the Equal Pay Day of Action, June 10 11am at Sydney Town Hall.

Boomers + , X and Y: A tea party for lesbian and queer women across generations
We'd like to invite you to meet with other lesbian and queer women from across the generations to listen, learn and make connections over a hot drink and a sweet treat.

We are a group of generation X and Y women who attended the recent feminist conference in Sydney and realised we had much to learn from older women, and from each other. We can't do this in a bar so we decided to organise something to bring people together in a relaxed atmosphere. Expect to share stories, insights and connections.

When: 3-6pm, Sunday 16th May, at the Red Rattler,
 6 Faversham St, Marrickville
Public transport options: Buses 423 and 426 stop on Victoria Rd near Sydenham Rd or Sydenham Railway Station is an 8min walk.
Catering: Please RSVP by 12th May so we can provide enough tea, coffee and biscuits. It'd be great if you brought a plate of treats to share.
Entry: Gold coin donation to cover the venue.

Auslan interpreters - DO YOU REQUIRE ONE?

We currently have two Auslan interpreters lined up for the conference for any attendees that require their assistance. At present, however, we have had no one indicate that they will require an interpreter and, as such, are considering cancelling the booking.

We have to give the interpreters 48 hours notice if we no longer require them so please let us know by WEDNESDAY NIGHT IF YOU REQUIRE AN AUSLAN INTERPRETER.

Our email is:

Thanks and looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday!!

P.S. If you haven’t booked already we are literally down to OUR LAST FEW TICKETS so get in fast or be prepared to miss out!!
