Early return of Women Weaving Stories

January 25, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Meet Madeleine Belfrage

Friends and colleagues, sometimes we have the opportunity to hear from a local woman, who has a great story to tell, but who will be heading overseas shortly. This is such an opportunity, so we are unexpectedly hosting an extra early 2023 session of Women Weaving Stories. Madeleine returns to Mexico at the beginning of February, so this is our one opportunity to hear from her.

Madeleine is an activist-researcher and Sandgate local who now lives and works in Mexico. She works with feminist abortion rights activists who assist women to obtain safe and autonomous abortions through community-based practices, often in contexts where it is legally restricted. Madeleine has just finished a PhD in social science at the University of Queensland and is currently working on abortion access research projects in Australia and Mexico, and with feminist networks who operate globally.

How did this Sandgate local find herself working and living in Mexico, how did she get into this unusual area of work, and what compelled her to do PhD research in this area? What has she written about the lives of women in Mexico and what’s next on her agenda?

We look forward to welcoming you at Womenspace. 

Please RSVP to 0431 112 721 – voice or text message.
