Meet the Author: Clementine Ford

In Conversation with Lou Heinrich

Allan Scott Auditorium, Hawke building, UniSA City West campus

Podcast available HERE

Clementine Ford is a Melbourne based writer, speaker and columnist for

The Age and Sydney Morning Herald. This event serves as a launch of her incendiary debut Fight Like a Girl. Clementine is an online sensation, fearless feminist heroine and scourge of misogynists everywhere and Fight Like a Girl is an essential manifesto that exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women.

In it she shares her personal stories of anxiety, anorexia, her birth as a feminist and fearlessly takes on a world of internet trolls and hate mail. Fight like a Girl will make readers laugh, cry, scream and, above all, will make them demand a world in which women have real equality.

Join us to hear Clementine discuss her book in conversation with Lou Heinrich. Lou Heinrich is a bibliophile who writes about pop culture and women. 

Books sales from 6.00pm and book signing post presentation.
