Contemporary Feminism Panel: Feminism—The Morning After

8 February 2017

Panels are in partnership with RNZ and have been recorded for broadcast. Listen to the Feminism–The Morning After broadcast here.

Sorry, this event is fully booked.

In the context of Cindy Sherman, City Gallery and Radio New Zealand present three big and lively conversations exploring contemporary feminism. Across three events, join panellists and RNZ presenters Eva Radich, Megan Whelan and Kim Hill as they explore contemporary ideas and issues around feminism, on a local and global scale.

In this first panel discussion, led by Eva Radich, speakers discuss ‘Feminism–The Morning After’. Second-wave feminism revolutionised the lives of western women—rights were won, laws changed, social structures adapted. What has been gained and what battles are we fighting today?

Speakers include:
Michèle A’Court, stand-up comedian, writer and social commentator
Anne Else, co-founder Broadsheet, writer and editor
Dr Jackie Blue, Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner
Ngahuia Te Awekotuku, MA (Hons) PhD MNZM, veteran cultural activist and former university professor

Cash bar open before and after each panel. Cindy Sherman will remain open until the event begins—exhibition entry charges apply.

Please arrive before 6pm to secure your seat.

In association with Cindy Sherman.
