Let’s Talk – Social Justice with Amy McQuire

Tune into Let’s Talk…social justice with Kevin Yow Yeh for the third episode in a five-part series on state-sanctioned colonial violence. This week, Kevin focuses on the gendered dimensions of colonial violence through a deep and wide-ranging conversation with Darumbal and South Sea Islander journalist and academic Amy McQuire.

In this episode, Kevin and Amy talk about the intersections of gender, race, class, and violence in the colony, and the specific ways that violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women is represented and erased by the mainstream media. Together, they work to uncover and understand how the state disappears racial and gendered violence and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and gender diverse people who are subjected to it.
