Mother advocacy 2016


We have two events planned for Mamapalooza this year: a film showing and a comedy night.

You are invited to our Mamapalooza Film Showing
WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS? by film maker Pamela Tanner Boll.
This academy award winning documentary features five fierce women who refuse to choose between mothering and work. Through their lives we explore some of the most problematic intersections of our time: mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art.
Where: The Women's Library, 8/10 Brown St. Newtown
When: Saturday 14th May, 2pm to 5pm
Discussion and refreshments after the film.
Please invite your friends.
Part of the Mamapalooza Festival.
Other events include: Mamapalooza Stand-Up 
and Mamapalooza Music Night  Celebrating Mothers in the Arts


A spectacular night of hilarious mama-comedy like you've never seen before!

LOU LOU POLLARD - She’s wowed audiences at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival & Adelaide Fringe as well as supporting Arj Barker & appearing on TV shows including Playschool and the Today Show.
AMANDA GRAY has a relentless assault that’s delivered with a deadpan, straight-faced style, packing a huge armoury of laughs. No topic is sacred, no taboo untouchable.
DOLORES is sharp, blunt and a quick witted delight. With stage presence galore, Dolores has even been described by those in the industry as ..too Funny!
"A very funny lady" - The Funny Tonne.
With support act by Ana Key and the Bra Girls! 

The AMIRICI conference is on in Melbourne in July. I am delivering a paper arguing that volunteering is propping up broken systems and we shouldn’t have to fundraise. It includes reference to this:

Again, if you have any ideas to share, that would be welcome.

Also, this blog is referenced in a book being published in the UK. Oh, and I was escorted from the Hilton whilst protesting to save women’s refuges.
