all about women

March 7 2021, Sydney Opera House

We’re thrilled to bring you Sydney’s favourite feminist gathering for the ninth year running in 2021. All About Women features a stellar line-up of incredible international and Australian thinkers interrogating a range of topics impacting the lives of women. 

Celebrate International Women’s Day with our unmissable one-day program of talks, panels, films, workshops, and contemporary art exploring themes of identity, history, technology, resilience, feminist futures, sex work, mindfulness, power, cinema and more as they intersect with the female experience. 

Featuring Caitlin Moran, Isabel Allende, Koa Beck, Laura Bates, FlexMami and many more, don’t miss this vibrant celebration of feminism for every person who is affected by the patriarchy.

Experience the festival in person at Sydney Opera House, or join us online via our livestream program.


This year’s All About Women illustrations are by artist Kim Siew. Join her for a hands-on workshop at the festival in Zine Fun-Damentals.
