You don't need to be at the Sydney Opera House on 10 March to experience the main stage action of All About Women. We're excited to be streaming three headline sessions and an exclusive backstage Q&A, live from this preeminent festival on gender. Feel free to attend any or all sessions as you desire.
All About Women features emerging new voices from around the world speaking to future directions in feminism.
12.15PM-1.30PM #MeToo, Year Two – Emily Steel, Sohaila Abdulali, Tina Tchen. Hosted by Lenore Taylor
A decade since the Me Too campaign began, and a year since #metoo rocked the entertainment industry, there has been a clear cultural shift. But it hasn't all happened smoothly. In this essential panel, we'll be exploring how the movement must evolve to represent women worldwide, and to create long-lasting cultural and political change.
1.30PM-2PM An exclusive backstage speaker interview will be conducted by Edwina Throsby, Head of Talks and Ideas, Sydney Opera House, with Emily Steel.
2PM-3PM Feminism in the Arab World - Aya Chebbi, Dima Matta, Randa Abdel Fattah. Hosted by Sara Saleh.
In a global feminist movement, our understanding of women's rights needs to go far beyond the English-speaking world. This session will demonstrate that discussions about women in the Arab world can go much deeper than “why do you wear hijab?”, and explore the issues and concerns, both political and personal, for Arab women and LGBTQI people.
3.15PM-4.30PM Leading while Female – Julia Banks, Julie Bishop, Linda Burney, Sarah Hanson-Young. Hosted by Jacqueline Maley.
“My gender... doesn't explain everything, it doesn't explain nothing.” Julia Gillard.
The last year has not been a good one for women in the Australian parliament. So what do those at the eye of the political storm have to say about leading while female?
