Event description

Description

Join popular media personality Tracey Spicer as she discusses her tell-all memoir 'The Good Girl Stripped Bare' – a frank and revealing reflection upon her career as an anchor for news, current affairs and lifestyle television programs.

As a novice in the industry Tracey played the role of the ‘good girl’, always smiling and obedient, despite ongoing pressure to look slim, young and sexy. But when she was sacked by email after having a baby, the good girl turned ‘bad’, taking legal action against the network for pregnancy discrimination.

In this frank and funny ‘femoir’ – part memoir, part manifesto – Tracey ‘sheconstructs’ the sexism and financial and structural barriers facing women in the workplace; at the same time she pulls back the covers on fake news, commercial influence on the media, and broader issues such as class warfare, anxiety, the beauty myth, alcoholism and voluntary euthanasia.

Books will be available for purchase on the night.

This event is free. Enquiries: 9093 6400
