It's our first In Conversation of 2020 and it's a gooooood one. Today on the show we are joined by the formidable force that is Clementine Ford. Of course, you're likely to know Clem for her writing on feminism and as the author of Fight Like a Girl and Boys will be Boys. But who is Clem Ford behind the writing and activism we know so well? We sat down with Clem in her Melbourne home to chat all about her work, yes, but what it was like growing up all over the Middle East and how motherhood changed everything.
Just setting the scene on this one before we jump in: we recorded this in Clem's apartment with a train line nearby which may hear very occasionally through the chat, but we think you will love it all the same.
Here are some links to buy Clem's books Fight Like a Girl and Boys will be Boys.
A big thank you to today's sponsor Denada Sugar Free Ice Cream.
