The War on Women: All About Women 2023
All About Women 2023 Satellite Festival Pass • 1h 21m
Speakers: Karen Iles, Chelsea Watego, Fatima Bhutto & Mona Eltahawy
Moderated by Sam Mostyn
Curated by Jane Caro
From the repression of women in Iran to the rollback of abortion rights in the US, the return of the Taliban in Afghanistan, the continuing fight for rights for First Nations people and justice for victims of sexual assault, there appears to be a global war against women.
Women around the world are speaking up and there has been a ferocious backlash. The courage of women who are insisting on fighting back when their freedoms are threatened or curtailed is both an inspiration and a cause for optimism. This panel will explore why there is such a determined and ruthless war against women, where women’s rights are at this moment, and what women must do to gain – or retain – their freedom.
Featuring: Karen Iles (Dharug lawyer, sexual assault survivor, and activist), Mona Eltahawy (editor of the Feminist Giant newsletter, an examination of gender-based attacks and the people fighting against them across the globe); Fatima Bhutto (Pakistani journalist, author and poet, who writes of the dangers for women in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran), and Chelsea Watego (Munanjahli and South Sea Islander academic and author of Another Day in the Colony).
