All About Women – Satellite Event


Sydney Opera House’s All About Women once again streams across Australia and New Zealand to reach you wherever you are!

The Townsville event will be hosted by JCU’s Professor Nola Alloway from the College of Arts, Societies and Education.

Beginning with the panel What needs to change? a remarkable group of prominent women discuss what they would do if they had the power to make things change overnight. Following the panel is Orange is the New Black, a talk with the real life Piper Kerman on what she’s learnt about women during her incarceration and the lessons she carries with her now as an advocate for the rights of prisoners.

At the conclusion of the live streaming, Judith Herrmann, Director of the Conflict Management and Resolution Program at JCU will present Redefining Justice, through a Woman’s eyes.  Judith has recently returned from Rwanda where she conducted research with female survivors of sexual violence.

All About Women is presented as part of Sydney Opera House’s annual talks program Ideas at the House.
