all about women

March 10 2019, Sydney Opera House

For the seventh year running, our talks and ideas festival, All About Women, celebrates International Women's Day with a full day of discussions and events. Our remarkable guests will be discussing the latest thinking on gender, #MeToo, rape culture, female anger, and the global reach and breadth of feminist thinking.

This year's festival has talks and discussions, live podcasts, and lessons in lady skills, from carpentry to flower arranging. Talking all things sisterhood, #MeToo and new voices of the future, this is a day of feminism for every person who is affected by the patriarchy.

Designed to welcome you into the global movement; 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 who wants to take a look at the past, present and future of feminism.
