We are kicking off our 2012 events with a film screening – Miss Representation – which explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the under representation of women in positions of power and influence.
After the film we’re honourd have a feisty and well qualified panel to discuss the representation of women in media. Our panel includes:
- Eva Cox AO (@evacox) – is a highly respected feminist, academic, and activist, whose work has informed and inspired a generation of women. She has been an active advocate for creating more civil societies.
- Kate Southam (@KateSoutham)- is a journalist with News Corporation, with the popular Cube Farmer career blog
- Yolanda Vega (@AWCCI) – is CEO of the Australian Women Chamber of Commerce & Industry
- John Bergin (@theburgerman) -is Director of Social Media and Digital News, Sky News Australia
