Ideas that matter streamed to you live from the sydney opera house.

Almost as good as being there! After the success of last year’s live stream of the How to be a Feminist from the Sydney Opera House’s All About Women festival, we’re doing it again! This time there will be two sessions – a panel of amazing women, and the woman behind Orange is the New Black – with afternoon tea (included in the ticket price) served in between. Doors open at 2.30pm.

Presented in association with Sydney Opera House and UC Arts.

3—4.15pm What Needs to Change?

Featuring Masha Gessen, Crystal Lameman, Mallory Ortberg, Ann Sherry & Anne- Marie Slaughter

If you could change the world overnight, what would you do first? Sometimes, it can seem like women are stuck as second-class citizens: devastating domestic violence statistics, the lack of women in leadership everywhere, the number of mothers living on the poverty line or beneath it. Yes, the situation for women has improved dramatically, but there are still seemingly immovable obstacles to real equality.

What needs to change? We ask our panel to tell us what crucial levers they would pull if they had the power to change things overnight.

5—6pm Orange Is the New Black with Piper Kerman

Meet the real life Piper Kerman, otherwise known as inmate #11187-424. You may know the story from the Netflix series based on her bestselling memoir, Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison.

How did a well-educated woman from Boston with a thirst for travel and adventure become embroiled in a money laundering operation – and how did her criminal past inspire a cult television series? From her first strip search to her final release, Piper reveals the lessons she learnt ‘doing time’ and how the generosity and acceptance of the women she met inside inspired her to become an advocate for the rights of female prisoners.
