(Apologies if the link isn't clicky, not done this before!)

Has anyone been before? I'd not heard of FiLiA before but what I'm reading looks pretty promising!

Clicky link

I'll be there smile

I think quite a few from MN were there last year, and the year before.

I've been twice now & Salford was the best yet. I met a lot of amazing women & it was great to see FiLiA tackling the sex & gender issue head-on.

I'm planning to go this year but might wait a bit longer to see the speaker line-up first.

Thank you Laura I'm rubbish with anything tech related!

Empress yeah I'd seen something FiLiA had published about the current sex/gender carry on and I was impressed!

It was great, Skirt. And lovely to see so many Adult Human Female & Hands Off My Rights T-shirts!

I'm thinking of going. Not bought a ticket yet though.

I'm excited about this agenda!

Very interested in the panels on women's health, surrogacy, violence against lesbians, and "from born in your own body" to "invention of the transgender child."

I'm going, loved last year, didn't want to leave 💜💚💜

Sadly not able to go, but have bought a solidarity ticket so that someone else can.

vaginafetishist Fri 09-Aug-19 14:36:22

I'm going, feel so excited seeing the programme!

I’m thinking about it. I have a few too many wokesters in my life though so feel a bit anxious about it. It looks amazing though.

Cuntysnark Fri 09-Aug-19 14:39:03

I’ve got my ticket :-)

AncientLights Fri 09-Aug-19 15:22:34

I have a ticket too. Never been to one before so looking forward to it.

The agenda has very little on it relating to trans issues if that's what worries you. Anyone who objects to the content of the conference isn't worth bothering with.

This looks really interesting. I'm unsure as to whether I should go alone or bring 6 year-old DD with me. Does anyone have any knowledge of the children's programme? Couldn't find much on the website.

SpartacusAutisticus Fri 09-Aug-19 15:34:50

The kids there last year looked to be having a lot of fun.

Rocaille Fri 09-Aug-19 15:37:36

Oh, thanks Spartacus. I think I'll take a chance and bring her with me. Hopefully we'll be able to avoid a whinge-a-thon.

CharlieParley Fri 09-Aug-19 15:39:57

I got my ticket. Not booked a hotel yet, but looking forward to it. Never been to anything like this before.

Definitely would be a great conference to attend. Real-life feminism is the way forward. Just working out transport/accomodation to see how do-able it all is.

vaginafetishist Fri 09-Aug-19 18:07:36

I took my daughter, the children's activities were fantastic and she's been a hard core feminist ever since!

TinselAngel Fri 09-Aug-19 18:44:41

I'm going.

chilling19 Fri 09-Aug-19 22:28:30

I'm going and really looking forward to it!
