Clementine Ford was born in 1981 (age 42 years) in Australia. She spent much of her childhood growing up in the Middle East, specifically in Oman on the eastern border of the United Arab Emirates. At the age of 12, her family relocated to England. Ford spent the remainder of her teenage years growing up in Adelaide, South Australia. As a teenager, she struggled with body image, body dysmorphia and an eating disorder.
Ford studied at the University of Adelaide, where she took a gender studies course; she describes this as a personal catalyst for her decision to become a women’s rights activist. During her time at the university, she also worked as an editor and contributor for the student newspaper On Dit.
Clementine Ford moved from Adelaide to Melbourne in 2011. She announced the birth of her son in August 2016. In 2007, Ford began writing a column for Adelaide’s Sunday Mail and also began writing for The Drum. Topics Ford wrote about included destigmatizing abortion; she described having an abortion herself as an easy decision that she feels no shame for.
In 2014, Clementine Ford wrote of her outrage towards comments made by Cory Bernardi which labeled pro-choice advocates “pro-death” soldiers of the “death industry”. Later that year, she wrote an opinion piece against a Victorian bill that would change the state’s abortion laws, arguing that if politicians cared about the lives of women and girls they would advocate for improved access to birth control, including terminations.
On White Ribbon Day in 2015, Ford made public some of the sexist and abusive messages that she had received online. Meriton Group, the employer of a man who had labeled Ford with a derogatory term, investigated Ford’s complaint and the man was dismissed from his job. Three Adelaide High School boys were suspended from their school for lewd comments they wrote about Ford.
In September 2016, Allen & Unwin published Ford’s first book, Fight Like a Girl. Her second book, Boys Will Be Boys, was published in 2018. The book is focused on toxic masculinity and the patriarchy.
She resigned from her role as a columnist with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age in January 2019, alleging that she had been “disciplined over a tweet” she made concerning the prime minister, Scott Morrison, and that she had been told it was the paper’s policy to refrain from “disrespect[ing] the office of the PM”.
In February 2020, Ford began a podcast called “Big Sister Hotline” on which she talks about current feminist issues and questions with guests such as Florence Given, Salma El-Werdany, Gemma Carey, Aileen Quinn and Yasmin Abdel-Magied.
In March 2016, Ford was banned from Facebook for 30 days for using profanity toward another user who had verbally abused her on her Facebook page. Ford accused Facebook of having a double standard, as the social networking site meanwhile declined to take action against a user who had posted a graphic internet meme making light of domestic violence.
In 2018, a Lifeline event featuring Ford was canceled following a petition calling for her removal, after she had made a Twitter comment which included the phrase “all men must die”.
Clementine Ford has commented on the issue of her sarcastic tweets being taken seriously by those opposing her. For example, after the man from Meriton Group was dismissed, another man tweeted th at Ford would not be happy until she had all the men fired. Ford said she would not be happy until all men were “fired … into the sun”. According to Ford, despite the clear jest, many men publicly accused her tweet of advocating for their mass murder.
In May 2020, Ford was criticized for her tweet stating that the coronavirus was not “killing men fast enough”, which has since been deleted. A Melbourne City Council arts grant that had been awarded to Ford was afterward said to be “under review” as a result of her comments.
Lord Mayor Sally Capp stated that Ford’s statement was “deliberately divisive and incredibly unhelpful when we are trying to keep our community together” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Following the backlash, Ford responded on Twitter by stating that although she still stood “100% behind my fury at men exploiting women’s unpaid labor”, she had “reconsidered her flippancy in discussing it” and was “a big enough person to admit when [she had] misjudged something”.
