International Women's Day
Get ready for International Women’s Day as we celebrate how each of us can help create a gender equal world. #EachforEqual
Journalist Jane Gilmore’s Fixed It project began as a response to a major Australian news site headline about a man who murdered his ex-girlfriend. She went on to make daily fixes on her website, gathering a significant social media following as she demonstrated the myths that we’re subconsciously sold about violence against women and children by undercutting them in a clear and compelling way.
Join us to hear Jane talk about her acclaimed book: “fixed it: Violence and the representation of women in the media” to consider the stories we are told about gender and power, and to remind us that change is possible – and why we need to keep going.
