All About Women Satellite
Live satellite direct from Sydney Opera House about ideas that matter to women.
05 Mar – 05 Mar
All About Women returns to the Sydney Opera House on March 5 as a prelude to International Women’s Day on March 8. In its fifth year, All About Women is one of Sydney Opera House’s flagship festivals. Full of talks and discussions about ideas that matter to women and provides an important platform for women’s voices.
All About Women streams live to reach us in Wollongong in The Music Lounge.
Start the morning with the renowned Geena Davis in her talk, Women and Media. Sharing her insight into Hollywood and the global film industry, Geena will discuss how far we still need to travel before girls can see the variety of women they want to become in the films they watch, the shows they stream and the media they absorb every day.
Next, go backstage in an All About Women Satellite exclusive with Jessa Crispin to explore the ideas in her latest book, Why I Am Not A Feminist?
Then head back to the main event for the Nasty Women panel featuring Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Van Badham and Lindy West to explore the labels that are deployed to try to put women in their place. But what happens when women stop being afraid, and ‘nasty woman’ becomes a badge of honour?.

11:35 - 11:55 Why Are You Not A Feminist? Backstage Q&A With Jessa Crispin
