“Misogyny, Power and the Media”
6:30 – 8:00pm, Wednesday 6 March
Theatre 2, Manning Clark Centre, Union Court, ANU, Canberra
This lecture is free and open to the public.
For those who can’t get there, the transcript of the lecture will be made available the next day at the Pamela Denoon Lecture website. This site is an amazing resource for what some distinguished feminists, including Eva Cox, Quentin Bryce and Anne Summers, have felt was important to say about the state of the nation and the world. A biography of Pamela and transcripts of most of the lectures since 1995 can also be found at the above address.
From the press release:
“Clementine Ford will examine the various ways women are exercising power in the face of a world that has tried to control them socially, culturally and politically. While the old media have often gagged feminist voices Clementine will focus on the presence of women in the media and in popular culture. She will explore factors that have contributed to an invisibility of issues relevant to women in public life and in the public consciousness while highlighting avenues for change.
