Sydney Writers’ Festival 2018 presents
THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL

The lack of political voice leads to disempowerment, disengagement and disadvantage.

In this panel, authors Kirsty Eagar, Randa Abdel-Fattah and Alice Pung offer personal testimony on the politics that affect them. Their testimonies are followed by a panel discussion on the ways marginalised voices are silenced, hosted by Bec Kavanagh. These women are sure to challenge the way we think.
