Fifth Friday Sisterhood presents 'Intersectionality: More Than a Word', an evening and dialogue about Intersectionality and the screening of the award winning film 'Sistagirl'. The word “Intersectionality” is breaking out of the closet. It came out of the thought and practice of black (lesbian) feminists, it was coined in 1989 by Kimberlé Crenshaw, and has been evolving since then, within circles of women of colour and far beyond. Civil groups from all walks of life are claiming it as a way forward, as theirs, as exclusive, inclusive, right, wrong, complicated, undoable, a mess, the answer. What do you think of Intersectionality as a way of moving forward? Come and join the Fifth Friday Sisterhood for a film screening and speakers, storytellers and spoken word artists, to explore this idea. 

About the film:
Award-winning indigenous photographer Bindi Cole travels from her Melbourne
home to the remote far North of Australia, to document the beautiful and private
world of the transgender ‘Sistergirls’ of the Tiwi Islands. ‘Sistagirl’ is a journey that defies existing stereotypes of what it means to be an indigenous Australian today. It is the story of acclaimed photographer Bindi Cole’s next attempt to artistically question what constitutes an Aboriginal identity. The film deliberately poses as many questions as it answers about racial and gender perception and identity.
