Jennifer Robinson and Keina Yoshida: How Many More Women?

Where
C24 Chancellery Walk
Kensington NSW 2052

When

Thursday 20 October from 6:30pm to 7:30pm

In the wake of MeToo, women are increasingly speaking up against gender-based violence. But as they have grown empowered to speak, a new form of systematic silencing has become more evident: the spike in survivors speaking out has been followed by a spike in legal actions against them and the media. 

How many more women: have to be raped or abused before we act? need to accuse him before we believe her? will be failed by the criminal justice system? need to say something before we do something? will be sued for defamation for speaking out? will be contracted to silence? 

In How Many More Women? Jennifer Robinson and Keina Yoshida examine the laws around the world that silence women, and explore the changes we need to make to ensure that women's freedoms are no longer threatened by the legal system that is supposed to protect them. 

Join Jennifer Robinson and Keina Yoshida live in-conversation with Jane Caro for a powerful and accessible exploration of our legal systems as they break open the big judgments, developments and trends that have and continue to silence and disadvantage women. 

This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas, UNSW Law & Justice and Sydney Writers' Festivaland supported by Allen & Unwin.
