Event description

Description

You don't need to be at the Sydney Opera House on 4 March to experience the main stage action of All About Women. We're excited to be streaming live, three headline sessions and an exclusive backstage interview, direct from the Sydney Opera House.

The All About Women Satellite program invites you to reflect on the past and imagine the future of feminism.


SESSION 2 - BEAUTY AS RESISTANCE

Rebecca Walker

Rebecca Walker coined the term Third Wave Feminism in 1992. It was a call to action, a response to an evolving movement, and an influential introduction to the idea of intersectionality. She is a provocative thinker and writer on motherhood, gender and race.

Now, she turns her incisive mind to beauty. How can we rethink the cultural concept and its associated notions of power and control? How can we expand beauty’s definition to liberate ourselves from white, patriarchal norms?

Join this author, activist and one of the most influential leaders of her generation for an illuminating discussion about the relationship between beauty and resistance.
