The Festival of Women's Ideas Into Action
took place in Brisbane's Powerhouse on March 3 & 4 thanks to the support
and hard work of many women. There were challenging and moving moments for participants as we collectively reflected
on the past, envisaged the future and resourced ourselves to be more effective
tools for change. A great diversity of women participated in the forum and
women from community groups who are often silenced or ignored were given a
central space to share their stories, concerns and hopes. We went from the
Festival re-energized for the Rally and March the next day.
