Revel in great storytelling, unexpected voices and shared wisdom spanning the ages.

Winner Best Spoken Word at Sydney Fringe 2019 and featured in All About Women 2020 at the Sydney Opera House, Generation Women celebrates and amplifies women’s voices and creativity. Each month, six women of note read an original piece on a theme. Of those women, one is in her 20s, her 30s, her 40s, her 50s, her 60s, and her 70s+. Our diverse line-ups will make you laugh, cry, and think. Generation Women is a unique, intimate storytelling night that brings together women of all ages.

Theme: Stories about falling in love

This month, hear tales of new love from our line-up of ladies of all ages. Our new loves reveal so much about us, so we wanna know about them. Maybe they’ll share a meet-cute story of falling in love with a friend, or hobby, or slice of gooey pizza. Whatever they care to share, you know it’ll be authentic and honest and maybe a little bit swoony. Come celebrate the birds and the bees with us this month at Howler.

Team 20s: Maddy Weeks is a Melbourne-based actor, writer and producer. Their on-stage presence has been described as "if a dachshund accidentally ate an entire packet of No-Doz". They are best known for their work as host of 'The Leak' and as co-producer of 'Queerly Beloved'- an all Queer profit share show

Team 30s: Sashi Perera is a Sri Lankan Australian comedian and former refugee lawyer. In 2021, she was featured on the UK's Funny Women Awards 'Ones to Watch' List and was part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival's 'The Breast of the Fest'.

Team 40s: Lilian Kikuvi is a Diversity and Inclusion Evangelist obsessed with helping individuals and organisations harness the extraordinary power of diversity and inclusion. Lilian is a Kenyan Australian who uses an African tribal framework to deliver solutions to clients that have included Fidelity International, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), Ronald McDonald House Charities, Medibank, Open Universities, Western Bulldogs AFL club, Melton City Council and Parkville Juvenile Corrections Centre.

Team 50s: Justine Sless is author of Mistress of Mirth's COMEDY Tour - she took to comedy like some take to drink. Sless teaches comedy to give voice to the voiceless and we know you wouldn't know it to look at her - but she once sneezed a bit of carrot onto a woman's hand.

Team 60s: Sarah Lloyd is a visual artist and poet. Her Grandmother was a scrabble champion, who out of nothing created words and stories.

Team 70s: Anita Jawary is an artist, poet, short story writer, speaker and storyteller. She is also a fan of the writer Charles Dickens. When asked why she named her website, ‘The Dickensian Challenge’? Anita explained “Dickens wrote his novels in regular instalments, to a deadline. If we could live our lives in that way, remembering that we have a deadline, how much more productive might they be?”
