Soapbox Series: Madison Griffiths



Event Status

Writer and podcaster Madison Griffiths discusses agency, choice and abortion as part of M/OTHER's free Soapbox Series. 


Abortion and power dynamics. Abusive relationships and the devastation they leave in their wake. Creator of the award-winning podcast Tender and author of the bold forthcoming work Tissue, Madison Griffiths doesn’t shy away from tough topics.

Between M/OTHER panels, meet us at The Moat as Griffiths takes to the soapbox to tackle abortion, agency, choice, and the power of women sharing their stories to shine a light in the darkness.

This is the first Soapbox event taking place over M/OTHER. You can also hear from writer, performance artist and sex worker Frankie van Kan on Saturday 4 March, and radio host and writer Jacinta Parsons on Sunday 5 March.



Conversations in M/OTHER may include references to topics such as mental health, reproductive rights, and childbirth. If you need assistance with any of these issues, you can learn more and seek advice via the Centre of Perinatal Excellence (COPE)Perintal Anxiety & Depression Australia (PANDA) and Beyond Blue.
