FWF 03 – Fatima Measham
Fatima Measham is a social and political writer and activist. She is a regular columnist and consulting editor for the online publication, Eureka Street and co-host of their Chattersquare podcast. In this interview Fatima discusses how moving from the Phillipines to Australia triggered her feminism, how she uses her writing to unpack social issues and her perspective on the scaffolding of the new wave of feminism post #metoo.
Fatima will be on the “It’s Personal: Feminism and Narrative Nonfiction” panel at the Feminist Writer’s Festival on May 26th, with authors Sarah Krasnostein and Maria Tumarkin, as they discuss whether writing about women’s real lives can effect social change.
