All About Women

A satellite event, streamed live from the Sydney Opera House

Sunday 5th March – 10.30am to 1pm

Butter Factory Theatre, Gateway Island, Wodonga

All About Women streams live to reach wherever you are!

This is the third year HotHouse Theatre has partnered with the Sydney Opera House to stream these fabulous panel discussions into our Butter Factory Theatre.

Start the morning with the renowned Geena Davis in her talk, Women and Media. Sharing her insight into Hollywood and the global film industry, Geena will discuss how far we still need to travel before girls can see the variety of women they want to become in the films they watch, the shows they stream and the media they absorb every day.

Next, go backstage in an All About Women Satellite exclusive with Jessa Crispin to explore the ideas in her latest book, Why I Am Not A Feminist.

Then head back to the main event for the Nasty Women panel featuring Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Van Badham and Lindy West to explore the labels that are deployed to try to put women in their place. But what happens when women stop being afraid, and ‘nasty woman’ becomes a badge of honour?

Women and Media Geena Davis | Solo Talk

Geena Davis has a rare insight into Hollywood and the global film industry – and she knows how far we still need to travel before girls can see the variety of women they want to become in the films they watch, the shows they stream and the media they absorb every day. How does film and TV culture reproduce gender stereotypes? And how can we change the industry so that it reflects and celebrates real women and girls?

Why Are You Not A Feminist? Backstage Q&A with Jessa Crispin

 Jessa Crispin is the founder and editor of online literary magazines Bookslut (2012-2016) and Spolia (2015-present). She is also the author of The Dead Ladies Project: Exiles, Expats, and Ex-Countries – an exploration of herself and other historical figures who have travelled in search of new beginnings.

Nasty Women: Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Van Badham, Lindy West | Panel

What is it about women with opinions, or aspirations to power, that brings out the worst in our culture? Whether we are called ‘nasty women’, ‘frightbats’  or ‘hysterical’ – take your pick – these are labels that are deployed to try to put women in their place. But what happens when women stop being afraid, and ‘nasty woman’ becomes a badge of honour?
