Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson in conversation with @blackfulla_bookclub
Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the masterpiece Talkin' Up to the White Woman by Distinguished Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson, a proud Goenpul woman and academic.This ground-breaking book shares an Indigenous standpoint as Moreton-Robinson ‘talks up’, engages with and interrogates western feminism in representation and practice.
This In Conversation is proudly hosted by @blackfulla_bookclub co-creators, Teela Reid and Merinda Dutton and it is not to be missed. Join these powerful First Nations women as they yarn about Moreton-Robinsons trailblazing work and engage in a timely and critical conversation not only about race and gender, but more importantly Indigenous sovereignty and decolonisation in a world dominated by whiteness and white privilege.
How far have we come? And how far do we have to go? Are you a feminist or are you a matriarch in the making!
This book is an analysis of the whiteness of Australian feminism and it’s effects on Indigenous women.
As Moreton-Robinson writes, “Indigenous women do not want to be white; our politics are concerned with sustaining and maintaining our cultural integrity and achieving self-determination as a people.”
