9 Mar 2021 Once Only Event
Celebrate International Women’s Day with the free screening of the documentary, Brazen Hussies, followed by an inspiring panel discussion.
Produced by Andrea Foxworthy, Brazen Hussies, is a critically-acclaimed documentary that tells the story of bold and diverse women who joined forces to defy the status quo, demand equality and create profound social change – contributing to one of the greatest social movements of the 20th Century.
Shining a light on an overlooked part of history, Brazen Hussies interweaves freshly uncovered archival footage, personal photographs, memorabilia and lively accounts from the daring women who reignited the feminist movement in Australia, at times at a great personal cost.
Following the documentary, Yarra Ranges Council is thrilled to present a line-up of acclaimed critical thinkers, thought-provokers and opinion writers who will speak briefly and field questions from the audience. The panellists will speak about gender equality, the privileged position of white feminism and challenging the status quo, in line with the 2021 International Women’s Day theme, Choose to Challenge.
Be part of the conversation. Be inspired by extraordinary women. And always, always Choose to Challenge.
A Question and Answer panel will be held after the screening of the film at The Memo, Healesville.
