Broad conversations with feminist broads.

Broad Conversations is rooted in anti-oppressive feminism. It upholds the values of justice, equity and anti-oppression. We seek to do this by a commitment to call-in culture and teaching, from a place of love and solidarity. We welcome all trans and cisWomen, non-binary and gender-fluid folks. We vow to use any and all privilege in the collective to protect, defend, celebrate and seek justice for the experiences of women.

The details

Broad Conversations are gatherings in Hamilton, Ontario for feminist broads. Our gatherings are intended to bring women and gender non-binary folks together to build community and wrestle with what it means to identify and act as a feminist in this topsy-turvy world.

We host speakers nights, informal social gatherings, educational evenings, and other events as ideas arise. Upcoming events are listed on our Facebook page.

We run a semi-regular newsletter, the Broad Conversation Starter Pack, with musings and links to conversation-stimulating articles. 

For a bit there was also a Broad Convos Radio Show and we’re exploring refreshing this as a podcast.

Broad Conversations is interested in partnering with progressive organizations to build community and action. Get in touch.

BROAD CONVERSATIONS IS... 

  • Firm in our mission to further a broad conversation among feminist broads in Hamilton; flexible in our execution of this mission.

  • Committed to improvement - of our feminism, intersectionality, and community engagement - and open to honest feedback from everyone.

  • Welcoming to all trans and cisWomen, non-binary and gender fluid folks interested in respectful - and at times feisty - conversation. While we adore many of our male counterparts, we ask that men respect this as a space for us to converse safely and on our terms.

 
 

“My silences had not protected me. Your silence will not protect you. But for every real word spoken, for every attempt I had ever made to speak those truths for which I am still seeking, I had made contact with other women while we examined the words to fit a world in which we all believed, bridging our differences. And it was the concern and caring of all those women which gave me strength….”

— Audre Lorde
