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 3 - SUFFRAGETTES TO SOCIAL MEDIA: WAVES OF FEMINISM

Panel | Barbara Caine, Nakkiah Lui, Anne Summers, and Rebecca Walker

While it’s hard to put a starting date on a complex social movement, modern western feminism has been around for about a hundred years. To celebrate, we are taking stock of what we’ve achieved, and looking at what’s left to fight for.

We're welcomed in the workplace, but women's work is often undervalued and underpaid. We have a measure of reproductive freedom but are still frighteningly vulnerable to sexual violence.

Each wave of feminism has faced extraordinary challenges. This panel will be a meeting of the generations as we look to an optimistic future: no feminist, aspiring or jaded, can afford to miss it.
