Being in #Soweto at @abantubookfest_ with fellow #African authors and readers was the perfect way to bring this year and this decade to a radical and revolutionary crescendo! #abantubookfest
I have returned home from @Abantu_ with my heart full of radical, revolutionary love and my mind bubbling with ideas #abantubookfest
And always @Abantu_: “A womxn’s place is in the revolution,” Assata Shakur #abantubookfest

This is cowardly capitulation by the ABC which is privileging the fragile sensibilities of white men over the wellbeing & safety of women. It is a reminder that imaginary violence against men upsets & disturbs more than actual violence against women… #qanda
This is what has driven #Australian white men hysterical: I asked “How long must we wait for men and boys to stop murdering us, to stop beating us and to stop raping us? How many rapists must we kill?"
Since I asked that on Q&A I've asked it at speaking engagements in NYC, Boston,Chicago & just these last few days #AbantuBookFest in Soweto, SAfrica. Everywhere I explain that the ABC pulled the episode & is investigating it,people have laughed at how fragile Australian men are

Speaking at @Abantu_ in South Africa was last leg in 2019 of #FeministGiant World Tour. It was a privilege & thrill to start it in #Sarajevo with #Bosnia’s first Pride and end it in #Soweto with #AbantuBookFest. Revolution in Sarajevo to revolution in Soweto. It’s been an honour!
Along the way,speaking at Pitchwise in #Sarajevo, @strandbookstore in #NYC, @RMWAdam in #Amsterdam, @McrLitFest in #Manchester, @akefestival in #Lagos, @wcfbook in #Chicago, also in #Brooklyn, #Ottawa, #Sydney, #Melbourne & turning #Australia upside down via TV. It’s been a ride!
So many incredible audiences & new friends along the way. Many thanks to all who came to hear me speak. Many thanks for the love and the gifts. So many powerful experiences. I’ve returned home full. Time now to reflect and then write about these three months. #FeministGiant

Relieved I was able to fly on Tuesday to be with my brother and his family for the holiday. This weather! Parents and sister and her husband drive to be with us tonight. It’s been a while and I’m grateful for this family reunion.
And after this short break with my family, I will see you next week #Soweto for @Abantu_! I am so excited! #abantubookfest
Since September, #FeministGiant World Tour has taken all over and I am grateful to all who came to see me speak and all who have bought The Seven Necessary Sins For Women and Girls as well as Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution. More dates 2020!
