===============

Sydney Festival and UNSW Centre for Ideas present: In 2021, a legion of women stood up and said they weren’t going to take it anymore, calling out violence, harassment and misogyny.

In a powerhouse panel featuring ABC reporter Louise Milligan, constitutional law expert Gabrielle Appleby and author and former Liberal turned Independent Federal MP Julia Banks, words will not be minced and bushes will not be beaten around.

They’ll reflect on exposing the Canberra bubble, holding a High Court judge to account and putting the spotlight on political misogyny, ultimately stepping out an action plan to give misogyny the flick – for good.

This event will close with a live music performance from the fierce and fabulous Jaguar Jonze, a vocal advocate for victims of sexual assault and harassment in the music industry whose recent single ‘Who Died and Made You King’ is a powerful new addition to the #MeToo songbook.

The Reckoning livestream

This event will also be available to view as a livestream as part of Sydney Festival's AT HOME digital program. Details to be announced on the Sydney Festival event page.
