Asian Bitches Down Under

Roughly one in 10 Aussies come from somewhere in Asia, yet when you look at our representation on TV, film, radio and literature, you’d think we were completely non-existent. What do you do when the world doesn’t give you the space to be heard? You make your own space.

Each week, sisters and Sydney locals Helen Stenbeck and Jessie Tu give searing intersectional feminist critiques on social and cultural issues relevant to those living in Australia and abroad. Join us as we traverse the complex intersectionality of gender, race and culture.
