Clementine Ford is a feminist writer, social commentator and public speaker based in Melbourne, Australia. She recently published her first book entitled ‘Fight Like A Girl’, the concept of which she describes as ‘testament to how strong women are and how vigorously we fight just to exist day to day, with all of the violence that is enacted against us’.
Clementine began using babywearing as a parenting tool not long into her parenting journey, and has discovered its many benefits whilst travelling the country with her work, enabling her to keep her child close as she does so. She is excited to participate in the Conference to share her views on feminism and parenting.
Clementine has a regular column with Fairfax Media’s publication ‘Daily Life’. Her articles range from topics such as politics, sport, and social media, all written from a strong feminist perspective. She focuses on highlighting the inequality of girls and women, and is unrelenting in her demands that the world do better.
