Woman Scream 2023 | Perth | Australia

Woman Scream 2023, 13th edition, was celebrated on March 11th, 2pm at The Moon Café, of Perth, Western Australia, Organised by Christine Della Vedova and Zan Ross.

Woman Scream Perth 2023 was an event that exemplified female strength. It consisted of six talented and courageous feature poets - Sally Newman, Carly Beth, Miriam Wei We Lo, Lucy Dougan, Namu and Liana Joy Christensen. It was hosted by Lisa Collyer and Manveen Kohli. These women shared their stories of gender inequality, domestic violence, and female sexuality. These stories made us laugh, cry, and moreover; empathize with one another.

Woman Scream 2023 Perth fundraises for Starick Services. Starick runs a series of domestic and family violence refuges across Perth. Woman Scream Perth 2023 raised at least $1385 AUD for the Starick Fundation. We also raised awareness of violence towards women.
