to develop the muscle.

ME TOO: YEAR TWO
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. Across industries, women who were preyed upon,
exploited and harassed have spoken out and sought justice, and the movement has
But it hasn’t all happened
smoothly. Louis CK returned to the comedy stage. The Senate confirmed Brett
Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Now that accountability frameworks have been
put in place, are the structures of justice and legal systems changing? Have we
seen a fundamental shift in the way power functions, or is it temporary and
superficial? How is #metoo playing out in different countries and cultures?
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.
FEMINISM IN THE ARAB WORLD
Chebbi, Dima Matta, Randa Abdel Fattah hosted by Sarah Saleh
In a global feminist movement, our
understanding of women’s rights needs to go far beyond the English-speaking
Arab women are so often
pigeonholed, orientalised and othered in western discussions about feminism.
But the reality is there are strong feminist and LGBTQI movements across the
Arab world. This panel, co curated by artist, poet and activist Sara Saleh,
challenges the assumptions so frequently made by westerners, that Arab women
are subjugated and oppressed, by giving space for some of the loudest activist
voices across the middle east.
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.
LEADING WHILE FEMALE
banks, Julie bishop, Linda Burney, Sarah Hanson-Young hosted
by Jacqueline Maley
While some of our most popular
politicians are women, they are still frequently overlooked for leadership
positions, are subjected to personal scrutiny to a level not inflicted on their
male colleagues, and they cop all sorts of sexist garbage while just trying to
do their jobs. Yet women have a huge amount to contribute to public life, and
our society would benefit from greater female representation in parliament. So
what needs to change to make more women want to run for public office in
Australia? Join this frank discussion about the pitfalls and rewards of working
in the sector, and how we can shift the culture so girls who want to grow up to
be PM are inspired, not discouraged.
