All About Women - Satellite Events
Sunday 6 March, doors open 11:30am
Sydney Opera House’s All About Women once again streams across Australia and New Zealand to reach you wherever you are!
Beginning with the panel What needs to change? a remarkable group of prominent women discuss what they would do if they had the power to make things change overnight. Following the panel is Orange is the New Black, a talk with the real life Piper Kerman on what she’s learnt about women during her incarceration and the lessons she carries with her now as an advocate for the rights of prisoners.
All About Women is presented as part of Sydney Opera House’s annual talks program Ideas at the House.
TALK 1: What Needs to Change?
A panel with Masha Gessen, Crystal Lameman, Mallory Ortbert, 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 woment in leadership everywhere, the number of mothers living on the poverty line or beneath it. yes, the situation for women has impoved 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.
TALK 2: Orange is the New Black with Piper Kerman
Meet the real life Piper Kerman, otherwise know as inmate #11187-424. You may know her 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-education woman from Boston with a thirst for travel and adventure become enbroiled 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 generoisty and acceptance of the women she met inside inspired her to become an advocate for the rights of female prisoners.
