all about women

March 4, 2018, Sydney Opera House

For the sixth year running, Sydney Opera House's talks and ideas festival All About Women celebrated International Women's Day with a full day of discussions and events. The festival featured remarkable guests discussing the latest thinking on intersectionality, #metoo, Trump, climate justice, and the curious and contested politics of singledom and relationships.

Curated by Edwina Throsby, formerly the TEDxSydney Head of Curation and founder and producer of ABC's Big Ideas, the 2018 program expanded far beyond talks. This year's festival offered talks and discussions, live podcasts, lessons in pickling and gin distilling, exploring the ability of food to bring like-minded people together.

Designed to make you think and push your boundaries, All About Women is a vibrant festival that asks questions about gender, justice and equality. This year's program is essential for anyone curious about the past and future of feminism.
