I’m about to board to start my journey home. #Australia it has been an intense and wonderful week of seeing good friends, making new ones, speaking at @UNSWCentreIdeas #unswideas, @wheelercentre #broadside2019, and appearing on #qanda. I stand by everything I said.
It is fucking ridiculous that the ABC has pulled the show from repeat views & that the government is involved via a ministerial statement & parliament inquiry. Such censorship & govt interference are dangerous & sinister esp in light of raids against the media in #Australia.
It is instructive that outrage over daily and actual violence against women and gender diverse people does not warrant such swift investigations or govt action. Instead, asking “How many rapists must we kill until men stop raping us?” terrifies white men into action.

Thank you all who came to see @fbhutto, @Sisonkemsimang and me at @wheelercentre’s #broadside2019 on Sunday. And extra thanks to the woman who gave me roses & all who waited so patiently at the book signing. I was signing & posing for pics for an hour. (Pic via @JordioKinesio)
And shouting “Fuck the patriarchy” with 1,000 people in #Melbourne Town Hall wa 🔥🔥 Thank you all! #broadside2019 via @tesslawley
And MASSIVE thanks to the @wheelercentre staff who made everything run so smoothly at #broadside2019, including gently sliding over a tissues box for tears during book signing (I see you Bromley!)
