Mary Beard Term 1

11 - 22 March 2024

On-Demand Digital Talk | Stages 4 - 6

Celebrate International Women’s Day in your classroom with this on demand talk from the Sydney Opera House All About Women Festival.

Join the world-famous classics scholar and feminist icon Mary Beard for this captivating conversation on her first-ever visit to Australia.


A feminist for the ages

For the first time, Sydney audiences will hear directly from Cambridge Professor Emerita Dame Mary Beard in an event that delves into the broad range of her career - from the ruins of ancient Rome to the trenches of Twitter. No one is better equipped to tell us about how power is skewed along gender lines than Mary Beard, whose latest book, Emperor of Rome, gives us a nuanced understanding of sex, class, race, and politics in the ancient world, and whose astute observations of modern political power have shone a light on the remarkably persistent patterns of patriarchy today.
