Outrage against systemic misogyny… allegations of the mistreatment, bullying and sexual abuse of women in the workplace… a cri de coeur for women’s safety and respect... The rally cry for gender equality is needed now, more than ever, yet sounds shockingly familiar.
Continue the crusade with film director Catherine Dwyer in this Q&A and special screening of Brazen Hussies, her feature documentary charts the rise of the Women’s Liberation movement of the 1960s and 70s. Brazen Hussies shows us how diverse and daring women joined forces to defy the status quo – ultimately contributing to one of the greatest social movements of the 20th Century – feminism.
Catherine is joined by the distinguished Elizabeth Reid AO who was appointed the world’s first advisor on women’s affairs to a head of government by the Australian Labor Government of Gough Whitlam. Joining the panel is Prof. Michelle Arrow author of The Seventies: The Personal, the Political and the making of modern Australia.
Together they’ll look at the successes and failures of Women’s Liberation, and uncover why we all – female and male, young and old – need to keep up the fight for women’s rights.
This event is presented Vivid Sydney supported by Parliament House NSW.
