All About Women Satellite 2019
#MeToo, Year Two
Emily Steel, Sohaila Abdulali, Tina Tchen hosted by Lenore Taylor
All About Women features emerging new voices from around the world speaking to future directions in feminism. 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 a headline session live from this preeminent festival on gender.
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 gone global.
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.
