Clementine Ford’s take on social issues is bold, brave and entertaining. She inspires and challenges people of all ages in equal measure.
Clementine is a Melbourne based writer, speaker and feminist thinker. She is a columnist for Fairfax’s Daily Life and is a regular contributor to The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald. Through her twice weekly columns for Daily Life, Clementine explores issues of gender inequality and pop culture. Her ability to use both humour and distilled fury to lay bare ongoing issues affecting women has earned her a huge and loyal readership amongst both women and men. Clementine’s work has radically challenged the issues of men’s violence against women, rape culture and gender warfare in Australia, while her comedic take on casual sexism and entertainment has earned her a reputation as an accomplished satirist.

We greatly enjoyed having Clementine at our event, and thank her again for her participation.
The audience for the event were very engaged – a number of audience members live-tweeted the event, and many of them were eager to stay after the completion of the panel to speak with and get photographs with Clementine and the other presenters. The overall feedback from the audience was very positive.
Clementine filled the brief very effectively. Her own keynote presentation covered some of her central arguments about the value of ‘angry feminism’, despite the risks women face expressing such opinions on social media. This presentation was very well-received.
