This project aims to show how feminist movements in Australia are placed and what motivates people who participate in the Destroy the Joint movement.

We wanted to spatially represent current feminist efforts and, in so doing, develop a geography of feminism in Australia today.  Specifically, this research focused on a case study of activism in Destroy the Joint to illustrate the diverse motivations and priorities of feminist activity.
