Event description
A media forum for women working in advocacy and the community sector.

About this Event

Mansplaining. Trolling. Backlash.

Overt and unconscious biases come to the front when women, and especially women from diverse backgrounds, join public debates in the Australian media.

Women are more likely to be interrupted while speaking, asked less follow up questions, and face greater online backlash than men.

This is the third event in our series designed to help elevate the voices of women working in the community sector.

Join us as we come together with a panel of women on the coalface of Australian media and community engagement to discuss tactics to push through misogyny in the media, and support each other when facing backlash.

Please note Chatham House Rule will be in place at this event.

BACKLASH is jointly hosted by ACOSS and UTS Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion.
