“You can bend but never break me / ‘Cause it only serves to make me More determined to achieve my final goal / And I come back even stronger Not a novice any longer / ‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul” Helen Reddy, I am Woman (1971)
From Cleopatra to Joan of Arc, Mother Theresa to Gaga and Greta, women’s power and strength has taken myriad forms over the course of history. With gratitude for a century of agitation by suffragettes and feminists, and activation by public figures and ‘ordinary’ women in both private and public domains, we are moving closer to a world with equal liberty and opportunity. This month we celebrate the courageous, determined, resourceful, outlandish, unorthodox and downright dangerous women at work. Our femme fantastic panel features:
- Nicola Mansfield: newly headhunted Managing Director of Interbrand Australia, who has built a career on expertly oscillating between strategy and creative;
- Danielle Harvey: co-curator of the Festival of Dangerous Ideas and co-founder and co-curator of the Sydney Opera house All About Women festival;
- Julie Rrap: one of Australians leading artists for over four decades, she uses photography, painting, sculpture, performance and film to explore the personal and political aspects of the human body.
For this month only, we are breaking from our usual Tuesday evening Insight slot to host on Friday 27 March, from 11:30am-12pm in the Golden Age Cinema, followed by our Insight panel interview in the Golden Age Cinema from 12pm-1pm.
