All About Women celebrates its fifth year in 2017 as part of the Sydney Opera House’s Talks and Ideas program.

Featuring innovators, culture-shakers, innovative thinkers and storytellers, the festival aims to invigorate discussion on important issues and ideas that matter to women today.

Enjoy a free morning tea and watch the live satellite feed in comfort at the Alice Springs Public Library.

8.30am – Welcome from guest MC

9.00am – 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.

10.05am – Next, in an All About Women Satellite exclusive, go backstage at the Sydney Opera House with Jessa Crispin to explore the ideas in her latest book, Why I Am Not A Feminist.

10.30am – Lastly, The Nasty Women panel featuring Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Van Badham, Celeste Liddle and Lindy West will 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?
