Australia’s Reckoning with Sexism and Misogyny

Sat 10 Sep, 4.30pm

The new books of Guardian political reporter Amy Remeikis (On Reckoning) and criminal lawyer Katrina Marson (Legitimate Sexpectations) shine a light on the complicity of our political and justice systems in entrenching misogyny and sexual violence. Remeikis and Marson come together to share their unique perspectives – Remeikis as a journalist in the Canberra press gallery and Marson as a sexual offences prosecutor – on consent, safeguarding sexual wellbeing, shifting power structures and their hopes for change, with Sophie Black.
