Politics in the Pub is a free, Q&A style debate which tackles the most pressing contemporary issues for both Australia and the world.
Each topic is addressed by a panel of experts from a range of disciplines. Following a panel discussion is the opportunity for the audience to pose their questions directly to the panel.
Tuesday 29 Aug
Our next Politics in the Pub will be discussing modern feminism in Australia, it’s relevance, priorities and future. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this complex and multifaceted debate.
There are few topics that can splinter public opinion as spectacularly as feminism. And yet few could argue that gender inequality underpins some of the most critical problems faced by our planet.
We have curated a stellar panel of experts in their fields including National Director and Founder of the One Woman Project Madeline Price, President of the Land Court of Queensland Justice Fleur Kingham, Associate Professor Michael Flood from QUT, Women’s Officer at the Queensland Teacher’s Union Penny Spalding and ABC Regional Editor for Queensland Cathie Schnitzerling. Mediating the panel discussion will be veteran Politics in the Pub host Marg O’Donnell.
The panellist’s combined range of experiences working day to day in feminist frameworks is sure to provide a robust and illuminating discussion. Following the panel debate will be an open Q&A session with the audience, giving you the opportunity to ask the questions that most matter to you.
