No Wonerland for Alice

The Brisbane women's movement has been paralyzed by this debate over the past three years. Why? IWD rallies have been split and dwarfed in size. IWD Celebrations became a confrontation in 2018 with epithets like 'transphobic' being tossed around. On 8th March this year, I attended the one called IWD Brisbane (Meanjin) rally at Roma Street forum where only 70 people turned up; whereas over 1,500 had come out in the same place in 2018 and marched through the streets of Brisbane. In 2020 there was no march.
